Hikes and Treks

Now that the rains have receded, tis the season of hikes and treks.
Gregg and I joined the 3rd and 4th graders on their day to hike around Woodstock campus.   We made it down to Midlands Stream where the kids took water temperature readings before we hiked back up to have lunch at Ridgewood Field.  We took a different path back up, and ran into a bunch of nettles and leaches!  I think the kids enjoyed salting the leaches, and showing off their leach bites- leach bites take a long time to stop bleeding due to the anti-coagulant that they inject into their victim.
