After examining a real bird's nest that was found in the Warehouse, Builders were eager to get started this morning. We trained on some new tools including the Japanese handsaw which helped us cut the vertical parts of our frame for the tree house. We also used the jigsaw to shape the front door.
We have walls!
After lunch we journeyed to the center of the earth......
When we left the cool green of the river and trail, and saw everything open up onto such a wide expanse of sand, it felt like we had landed somewhere entirely unknown. It was a long climb to the top and the sand was dotted with all kinds of amazing rocks and even a few fossils. There was also heavy equipment to gaze upon. Everyone felt happy.
Monarch caterpillars found on an afternoon walk.....and then back into the work shop.
The pigeon's nest is looking pretty cozy, don't you think?
