Wild & Wanderful

Leaf Hunting & Piggy Stopping.

We simply adore the school Louis is going to right now.  The teachers and administration are wonderful and I feel like they keep the parents as involved as they can.  We even get an email every week with a recap and some photos of what they did the previous week.  It’s awesome.  As you can imagine, the recap from Louis has a few holes in it.  And if he doesn’t know his classmate’s name, they are usually called “The Other Kid”.  So…the emails are grand.

We got one this weekend that said they were going to be learning about the change in seasons and class was going to be fall themed.  And we were instructed to send 2-3 different types of leaves with Louis to school.  So we went out on a leaf hunt yesterday.


Some of us were in more mischievous moods than others.  I’ll leave you to decide who that could have been.  But today, Louis is taking to school with him leaves from a Sycamore, Dogwood and Paw Paw tree.  I’m interested to see if he remembers what they’re from or not.


Of course.  There were a lot of distractions in the great outdoors, while leaf hunting.  Mostly distractions in the form of Louis’ imagination.  No surprise there.  I’ll leave it up to him to tell you:

That kid has some sweet ninja skills.  I wouldn’t mess with him.
