Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Back to the Boardman.......................

Today, Tuesday, the Nature center should be open so we went back. Cooper liked it because it has a section for kids to do things.
They have colouring papers, a tunnel to climb through, books. Magnifiers and stuff to look at. Puppets and stuffies. He zeroed in on a balloon and focused on that.

He enjoyed that so much he didn't want to move on and look at the exhibits, but we got him going.

At a distance some turtles were sunbathing. I wonder what will happen to them all when they change things. How do they plan on opening it all up and changing the direction and flow of the river.

Cooper is not used to long walks, so we kept it short again. He does well but looses interest quite quickly. At least we got some walking in again.
He had wanted to go back inside for the balloon but we deflected that by reminding him of his rock from yesterday, was it still there? Off he went to check that out and that was quite near the car. Phew!!! We made it without a meltdown.
