That's right, last week was Swamp Week. We sang Old MacDonald as "Old MacT (or Beautiful MacM) lived near a swamp--E-I-E-I-O..." And then we named lots of creepy things that lived in swamps and the kids LOVED it!
I also attempted to capture a turtle that was racing across my neighbor's driveway. Yep, racing. Not quite like a rabbit, but it was booking it! Tried to get it in a box, but I must confess I was a little too creeped out to pick it up--I was a definitely intimidated by its speed and claws.
I did manage to pick up a toad, though. With gloves.
And I know this is a bit of a stretch (would probably have been a better fit for, say, Beach Week), but we also finally set up a sandbox for M & T. "Swamp dirt" as we called it. :) It literally occupies them for an hour at a time!
I have given up on requiring shoes and socks outside. Decided there were bigger battles to fight and that it does feel good to have sand between your toes. ;)
