Plan B: A Great Plan

We pretty much plan to go outside, no matter what. We’re no weather wimps here. Unless we have lightning or high winds, we’re taking kids outdoors. There are no whiners here!

But somedays the weather wins. Today, the weather won. We have 55 middle schoolers here from Patrick Henry Middle School in Sioux Falls. It does make us pause early in the morning and think “Oh, no! What are we going to do with 55 middle schoolers if the weather is bad?”

Plan B. Plan B is a great plan and today is one of the days when it works beautifully. We have one of the best groups of 6th graders we’ve ever had! They adjusted to being inside instead of out, we adjusted our schedules and away we went. Instead of fishing, hiking, orienteering and outdoor cooking, we’re doing tree identification, owl pellets, outdoor cooking on the grill out the back door and we’re playing a nature quiz bowl game.

We’re having a blast!
