Later, the boys had to do a challenge. They had to all climb up this steep bank and then walk through this patch of woods then climb back down the steep bank on the other side of this giant tree. So I went up with the boys to help them and make sure they went down one at a time and didn't run into each other or push each other. They were pretty good, and all of them made it up and down several times. However, it was very muddy so there was a lot of slipping and sliding, which the boys loved! All of them ended up very muddy! Including me. After I made sure all the boys made it down safely, I had to go down and by that point all the sliding the boys had done made it like a slide. I was very successful at getting down without falling, just using my hands and feet and kinda crab walking down. But then when I got close to the bottom, my foot slid and I just kinda sat down in the mud. We all had a great laugh! :)
While I am learning a lot this year, I remember that its always important to take some time to have fun! And what's more fun then playing in the mud?! Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!!! (Ms. Frizzle). For when you make mistakes that's how you learn.
