Today Mr. Rhys was with us. It was the first time some of us met him and we were all glad to have him there.
We started the day by talking about our plan. We were going to go across the stream but men were doing construction so we could not. We had to change our plans.
At the start, we played a game called Fire in the Forest. This is a game where everyone pretends to be an animal. The person who is "it" says things like "If you have a tail, come across" then they try to tag you. If they get you, you pretend to be a tree and try to tag the others who come by. If the person who is "it" yells "Fire in the Forest" all the people (animals) run. It was fun.
We also had a race to see who could build the best shelter. We broke off into two teams and it ended up a tie. While we were building the shelters, Misha found a strange white and orange grub! It was curled up and might have been hibernating.
After lunch some played games or played in the dirt. Nick found some wild grapes and most people liked them...especially the baby, Victor!
Then we hiked back and some played "Gaga Ball" where you try to hit someone else's feet.
Then it was time to go home!
