Have I mentioned that we love Montessori learning?
Lucas and a few of his friends create elaborate games during their lunch recess. Here, they created a maze that literally filled the whole backyard using the leaves that were falling from the shade trees.
They kept it up for over a week. I'm glad I took a picture when I did, as there was a wind and rain storm the next day, and it was gone! No worries -- they were ready to move on to the next project. Maybe it will be a lunchtime science club, a habitat for the free-ranging chickens, or an olympic team. The sky's the limit!
