After our rainy weekend, we spent a lot of time outside this week so we could enjoy the sunshine. On Wednesday, we even took the series books we've been reading outside so we could do our independent reading out in the garden!
We saw lots of little critters outside, including inch worms, butterflies, ladybugs, and bumble bees, who were buzzing around and pollinating all of the flowers around the garden. We also got to see the purple lilacs growing by the picnic tables. We just learned that the purple lilac is our state flower and the ladybug is our state insect!
Our day may have been short, but it was certainly sweet :)
