Friday was co-op day with our amazing group of friends. Strawberry got to play and exercise to fun songs (which she has been singing all day since), Pumpkin Pie and Butterfly got to make a necklace with beads and read and discuss Beauty and the Beast, Butterfly and Tiger got to learn more about King Tut and the exhibit at the science center and make amulets and jeweled collars, and Tiger got to spend some time playing board games, we went to the park around the corner.
Girls Dressed up like princesses for their book club.
Making collars for King Tut.
Our co-op meets in a community center overlooking part of the Puget Sound. Then, after co-op we head to the beach park a couple blocks away. There, we can see the ferries, lots of boats, railroad tracks, play on a playground and see lots of wild life. Today was an extra special treat… a pod of Killer Whales swam right past us!
And then we saw some seals playing out in the water too!
Butterfly found some fresh seaweed on the beach too.
I had never seen Killer Whales in the wild. As a child we would go whale watching and see Humpback whales but today was a special treat for all of us. We all felt grateful for the opportunities that nature provided our children- and we didn’t have to pay $20-$50 a person to see the whales either!
