Happy Birthday, Will! There was a lot of excitement surrounding Will's birthday celebration. At this point the children know the routine and are enthused about the big reveal of the storybook gift. Will happily added commentary to the photos Marguerite and William shared while Lane, it seemed, was dressed in her best fashion for the occasion. To top it off, Will's book was about him! Come read our newest book in the RR library: Will: Underground with a banana and an airplane.
Neighborhood Wreaths Inspire
We saw a lot of lovely holiday decorations inside and outside of shops and on the doors, windows, and banisters of houses on our field trip. We departed St. Johns to walk a section of the neighborhood that included a trip to the Greenworks Florist (the "pink flower shop") and then to Dean & Delucca. Along the way we noticed more wreath decorations than any other decorations. So, photographs of the wreaths were presented to the children with the provocation to design their own as a way to inspire creating our own Rainey Room shop wreath because as Max said, "let's decorate the shop."
