Today was a crisp Spring day. Even though winter coats were still de rigueur, we decided to go for a walk in the woods. OK, these are the urban woods, but they can have a charm of their own. There are many different kinds of wood in the woods to discuss: trees, sticks, wood chip mulch that used to be Christmas trees (not a good idea to relive that traumatic moment in Kiddo’s history). There are lots of different ways to think about wood: different barks have different textures, colors, roots in and above ground. Sticks have different thicknesses, lengths, throwing properties.Sometimes there is a sign Spring is near: Sometimes there is a sign a concrete path is near:Sometimes you find a wood fort that someone else made and have a great time.
