Muddy Feet

There is one good thing about mud season.  It gives some of the best tracks.  Here are a couple we saw one a recent hike.
This one was easy for Froggy to identify. We get lots of deer around here.

Pi Day

Image
Yesterday was the Pi Day of the century.   In order to prepare we made Pi Skylines.  I hung a poster of Pi. Froggy was giggly at the idea of turning a number into a picture.  This is probably the first time she has actually worked with graph paper.  I did not realize that until we were well into the program.  I worked along side Froggy but did mine silhouette style in all shadow. You can't tell in the pictures but the birds in the sky are little Pis.    We had chocolate pie for dessert.  I forgot to take a picture of it so I will share the recipe photo (mine are never this pretty).  I hope you enjoyed your Pi day as much as we did.

A new look

It was a big change for Froggy today.  She got her haircut short.  Goodbye braids Hello Curls

Soil Testing

Image
Froggy and her friend, M decided to compare the soils in their gardens.  These contraptions simulate the rainfall while catching the runoff. 
The shorter container is from Froggy's garden with potting soil while the taller container is from M's backyard where she uses plain dirt. You can see how much more erosion there was from the potting soil. Froggy finally understood why we have to keep refilling the pots.
