The girls and I spent the morning at Chaplin Nature Center. We hiked through the woods and saw LOTS of spiders. As the first people down the trail, we cleared away dozens and dozens of webs. Rachel stopped to inspect every snail and milipede. She also was afraid we'd see bears. Katherine was interested in the many deer, coyote, and bobcat footprints on the trail. We followed a trail all the way to a sandbar on the Arkansas River. The girls thought it was a great beach! They played and played. Then we hiked back, grubby and tired. A walk in the woods is alway good for the soul.
