Many of our five year old friends started kindergarten today, and they aren't far from our thoughts...a couple of our friends start tomorrow, best wishes to them, too!

May your days be many and your troubles be few.
May all God's blessings descend upon you.
May peace be within you, may your heart be strong.
May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.
~Irish Blessing

We enjoyed painting today...

And doing the dishes...

And sweeping...

And forest adventures, feeding the cats, rabbits, and large animals, eating peanut butter banana smoothies and awesome egg salad, watching hummingbirds, playing dominoes, reading new library books, crocheting, and soaking up the sunshine.

This Week, 7/25/11+

Everyone has their passion. Mine is watching young humans develop. And, I think it just might be the most amazing process ever! Not to toot our horn, but I think magic happens here daily...we simply have to notice.

Sleep gloves...

Learning to use our puff ball catapults...

She loved watching the puff balls fly!


Ojos de Dios...

Making a family banner...

Curtain peek-a-boo...

Rocking and singing...

Happy cook!

We conducted a staff meeting Wednesday night...dinner together and experience in the living arts. We washed our dishes and cloth napkins after our meal. PreK and TransPreK will add this to their lunch routine in late August.

One pod or two?

Making BLTs for lunch...

Knitting circle...

Catapult construction...

Now that's a multitasking working mom!

Mustache and beard...

The giant's chair...

Mixing concrete with Mr. Jesse for our bread oven foundation...

Seeing what a fifteen pound catapult ball may have felt like...

Did we mention they love the catapults?

Today we built Popsicle stick catapults in Summer Camp and PreK...

Miss Janie's instructions...thanks for the great lesson plans and kits of materials delivered to our classrooms!


This student drew herself with her his stylin' ball cap!

Our new water boxes are swell!

One of my favorites!

The children will awaken to the smells of berry crumble. I love nurturing the children with homemade food that smells fantastic!
