today we cleaned all the new eggs (8 total) and even brought out some eggs from the weekend to clean since the children so loved washing them. we filled up a galvanized metal tub with water and our fave dr. bronners (lavender, of course) the children loved how the dr. bronners seemed to turn the water purple when they washed the eggs. considering we've been studying fairies this week it added to the magic in the air!
here are some of the cutest bonnets in town washing about 3 dozen eggs and drying them in the sun!
love summer in maine.

this week we learned about building! everything from fairy houses to teepees! we had an older brother join us who is an expert at structures. he taught the children a bit about some native american outdoor structures and we set about building some examples which we chose from one we loved and will build to size. it's exciting to think what we build in the summer ( a teepee and a wigwam) will carry over into our year in september. i know the children will love getting in and out of such places all year and they will be as fun in fall as spring as in the winter!
here are a few snaps of the tee pee projects...
oh and a quick one of the new chicken run!!!
