Yesterday some of us ventured out of the gates of school and walked the neighborhood in search of squirrel nests. There is more than one nest visible from our yard and we went exploring to find more. I told them that when all the leaves leave the trees, we can better see the nests the squirrels build- they look like leaf piles that got caught in crooks of the branches on their journey downward.
Someone spies a hole in a mossy wall and we all wonder if mice might make a nest in that cozy little spot.
I wonder how many squirrel nests you can spot just on your way to school? It can be an incredible feeling to be reminded that we are sharing this world, this city, this neighborhood, with many other creatures.
