Its our official homeschooling, kindergarden day number 3...
and yesterday we visited the beautiful "Tyler Arboretum" in Pennsylvania.
The Tyler Arboretum encompasses 650 acres and is home to ancient trees, rare plants, historic buildings and beautiful hiking trails. They had a fantastic exhibit called "Nature's enchantments" and it displayed over 30 amazing, artistic tree houses that children could climb and explore. It also had through out the grounds, little fairy dwellings, houses and villages that artists had created and the children had to find. There were goblin houses, troll bridges, hobbit gardens, wizard workshops and gnome cottages.
We had an amazing time! So much fun! (and already a field trip on the first week of school!) ;)
