Front Porch Picking Party


We stoked the fireplace and dusted the shelves of our 1800s cabin for this special Toddler Tuesday.  The theme was a jam session on the front porch, but we learned all about animals that live under our houses.  We had an opossum come a knockin’ at our door, at our door… and a pair of sweetheart flying squirrels.

We read ‘Possum Comes  a Knockin’ at the Door’ by Nancy Van Laan, and then had a mighty good jam session.
