Mid-Winter Adventures with the Fire Tenders – Story of the Day – February 1st, 2019

i Feb 8th No Comments by

Our Friday last week was chock full of wonder and wildness! We began our day down by the waters, in company with Canada Geese, Bald Eagles, and other wildfolk.

We engaged in a new game known as Scout Foxes. We divided up into teams, established our bases, and then the fun began. Running around like Coyote, being stealthy like Bobcat, we allowed our wild animals to come forth! Some of us dived into mud, while others got stuck in the very same! Adventures were had, bonds were deepened, and memories were made.

Alas, Scout Foxes was not all the fun to be had! Some of us remained with the fire, stoking the hearth of our home away from home. Nature drawings were born, cordage was woven, and some us deepened our knowledge as tenders of fire.

As the day came to a close, we wandered down to the shores, met and saved a Starfish, gathered and molded clay, and some of us were even brave enough to dip our lower legs into the icy cold sea!

Ah but there’s more! An animal funeral was held in the morning; drenches, islands & structures were carved into the sand pit. All this and so many other creaturely tales!

I wonder what stories your FireTender could tell of our wild adventures?
