They are native to North America, but now they are grown on every continent except for Antarctica!

Most of the time we see icicles on houses – but they are so beautiful when they grow on trees! And they are fun to touch and hold, but you have to be careful because they can be very heavy! Icicles grow when it’s freezing cold and sunny. The sunlight melts the ice and snow – and it starts to drip. But then the freezing cold air makes it turn into ice again. Every drip that turns to ice adds […]
It doesn’t look like Sophie’s umbrella is going to help her stay dry with Sadie jumping in the puddle! Puddles have a funny definition – basically they are any water that is shallow enough to walk through and not deep enough to float a boat or raft. I think a better definition is ‘fun to splash in!’ Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
For some people hay season may mean allergies – for farmers it means getting food stored for the winter for their animals – for the rest of us it means all the lovely things that come with fall…including hay rides!

Well, it looks like Sadie has figured out an Olympic sport that works well for having one frond (cactus arm) – the shot put! She was super excited that Michelle Carter was the first woman in the US to win a gold medal in shot put in the Olympics. I haven’t told her how heavy the actual shot puts are…the women’s shot (the ball is called the shot) weighs 8.8 pounds (4kg) and men’s shot weighs 16 pounds (7kg) – […]

Did you know that before ice hockey pucks were invented, frozen cow poop was used as a puck! Wow, the things we learn. There are lots of different ways to play hockey – on ice, on roller skates, on the street, under water, with a ball, with a puck… Sophie and Max are playing street hockey – looks like fun!

Wow – this is really a fun swing! Don’t you wish you were on it with Sophie and Sadie? There are so many old tires that are starting to be recycled in very cool ways – as tire swings, of course!, and also under playgrounds to make the ground softer and more bouncy and also mixed into the asphalt on highways to make them last longer.
