Happy New Year Everyone!
Welcome to the Forest!

Our first day back from winter vacation was a cold one! Brrrrr it was cold outside. We were so busy trying to stay warm that Mrs. Black Bear did not remember to take very many pictures but we still had a great time.  It took us a long time to get up to the top of the hill! We thought Ms. Black Bear was CRAZY for having us wear so many clothes but we are so glad we did!

Our Highlights from the Forest Kids:
