Walk like an...

Inchworm? Sure, why not?! The girls learned a bit more about bugs the last couple of days and they were pretty impressed with the bugs. First they found out that a grasshopper can jump 20 times it's body length. So then they had to figure out if they were grasshoppers how far they would be able to jump at their current height! They were even more impressed when they found out a flea can jump 150 times it's body length so of course we had to figure that out for them as well. Turns out if they were fleas it'd only take a few jumps to make it all the way to the swim center! Wouldn't that be fun!!
They also leaned about inch worms so of course we had to try to move like an inch worm! It turned into a pretty fun "exercise" class!

We also got some snow this last week so the girls got to play a bit in the snow...


 While the girls played, Dominic stayed inside nice and warm...
With his bottle and his elephant buddy! He does love his elephant buddy!
We had a fun 4H meeting as well and made some wreaths, Christmas tree ornaments and of course a fast snack! I'll get pics of their projects up soon!
