Watershed

Our play group activity for the day was an adventure out to the local watershed. They have fun experiments for the kids to visualise the flow of water. They have tubes pressured by air and little yellow balls that represent water. The kids had a great time! Jacob enjoyed watching the balls "stream" overhead in the clear plastic tubes then watching them drop out the other side of the room. It was a great visual for kids. Andrew enjoyed opening all the flaps and searching for balls in the drop-off containers. All the kids got along well. It was a fun outing. --emily

Hey! I've been meaning to thank you all week for a great dinner on Sunday. Thanks for inviting us over. We should do it again! You guys do some great outings with the kids! The "watershed" looks fun AND educational. Great idea!

That sounds like a fun and educational outing. It looks like Andrew can't wait to be about three inches taller. He sure is stre-------tching! Love you guys.

That watershed is a neat place. I'll have to look into it and see when it's open. My kids would love to visit when we're in the area again.
