Homeschool Group: Carpenter Nature Center

We've found a fantastic Homeschool group that we love meeting up with.  They are a group of Mamas and Papas who are interested in nature and experiential learning.  Technically we're a mix of unschoolers, Waldorf-inspired schoolers, and nature-inspired schoolers, and the mix works quite nicely.  We met at Carpenter Nature Center today for a homeschool program.  The educators at CNC are stellar, and the kids really enjoyed their program, animal encounters and scavenger hunt around the grounds.  We even ran into one of Alex's former MWS classmates and his family!  Small world!

Science class today was all about nature changing from summer to fall-- we were able to check off quite a few of the items on the scavenger hunt, including wild grapes (yum) and wild highbush cranberries (yuck!).  We ended our morning with a picnic with our new friends and collected enough buckeyes to fill our nature basket!
