We have three huge trees in our back yard.
They provide awesome shade! Yesterday they provided an avenue for imagination and learning.
Now I can't say I know exactly when or how the idea came to be. I looked over to find two of the kids pushing a broom into the side of the tree.
My first thought is that they should not be doing this and I started to make my way over towards them. Before I intervened I listened to the conversation between Big "A" and "D." Big "A" was explaining to "D" that they were making a hole in the tree to get to the sap. From the sap they would make syrup and then sell it in the front yard. (Who needs a lemonade when you can get fresh syrup? :) )
