Today started with a very unusual chapel. Ginny couldn't join us, so Marley led chapel. The lighter didn't work so the Tucker Room friends pretended to light the candles, while Jessica raced back to the school to find a lighter and save the day. Then Kate read a book about bees that had all of the children buzzing (literally) with excitement. We all just rolled with it, and had lots of fun laughs.
In the studio, some friends were busy at the easel while others worked hard at glazing their clay pieces. Everyone was thoughtful and focused. Leigh and Lou Lou kept each other--and the rest of us--in stitches and helped to brighten up a rainy dreary day. At the same time, a group of friends created a construction site with clay and trucks in the studio--working together and manipulating the clay with their trucks and hands. At snack, we had edamame. It was a little intimidating at first, but we had a great time shelling the peas and loved the taste. It was a hit!
Outside, despite the cloudy skies and drizzle, we had a fantastic time in the outdoor classroom. Sam sailed some passengers to the park, with assistance from Will. We made good use of the beautiful wheel barrows that Victor rebuilt for us. The children noticed how strong and smooth and beautiful they are, and are very curious about Victor. We talked about writing him a thank you note.
