we started our day at our local museum, where the children got to experience “hands-on” the ways in which a family from 1860 would prepare for the winter months ahead…
At the end of our lovely day, as the children were rolling down the hill at one of the great city parks, the little guy that I babysit for had a run-in with the step railings. Lots of blood (as usually is the case with head injuries) and tears, and it is yet-to-be-determined whether it is broken or not…. I should feel better that several minutes after my daughter took this last photo, he was rolling down the hill again, but boy, I sure feel bad for the little guy.
In spite of the not-so-great ending, we had a lovely day! The children learned a lot, and we all enjoyed spending time in the sunshine and cool weather!
