We also completed worksheets that list our favorite things and the differences between each other.

We enjoyed chips from Courtney and juice drinks from Mr. B that was left over from the DARE graduation.

We had a good turnout for the Wings of Spring Confluence Birding Festival. The girls made a blue bird birdhouse. We also seen other birds and owls. We also went for a short hike. Afterwards, we had a picnic lunch by the Lock and Dam and an ice cream cone on the way home.
