We completed the first challenge on Friday. I had planned to do the cattail study in the autumn but we never got around to it. I only pointed them out a few times when we drove by. I made an effort last week to make sure we did this as I knew we had snow coming and we wouldn't be able to do it.
We weren't there too long. It was COLD. But we observed then Emma drew a very quick sketch and we went to the library where it was nice and warm. I am looking forward to observing the changes of the cattails over the course of the year.
