The kids did a little of journal writing during our trip. We used the bad weather days for that. Fortunately for us, we had very few bad weather days.
At the end of each, as we were talking about what we had done, I would write notes of the things they enjoyed the most. They have used those notes to write in their journals.
Little Guy created this folding piece of paper booklet to draw, and label what he was discovering in our walks.
But then, it started to rain. That was when we checked the forecast and found out that the next couple of days it was just going to pour. We love being together; but being inside our tiny RV for more than a day in the rain is not fun for anyone. So we adjusted our plans and started to drive south. On our way we told the kids that we were going to take them to the wilderness. They were clueless when we got out off the RV to go inside the Wilderness Resort and Water Park in Wisconsin Dells. It was a great choice for a rainy day.
Our last stop before getting home was Devil´s Lake in Baraboo, WI. When we visited their nature center we learned about The Smokey Bear program. We were able to check-out a bear to hike and spend the night with each one of the kids. We also wrote in the bear's journal to share about our experiences in the park. The kids loved playing, and sleeping with the bears.
Here is a view of the lake from a look-out area. Next, a picture of the walk next to the lake, where we were able to see boulders, and cobblestones.
This last walk came to mind when talking about rock sizes.
