Today, the Rainey Room had the good fortune to be the first children to enjoy the fresh, powdery, beautiful snow-covered outdoor classroom. There wasn't quite enough snow (or desire) to build a snowman, but we dug, groomed, threw, and ate snow all morning. And we discovered that going down a snowy slide is not at all like sledding.
Eating snow was probably the favored activity. We talked a lot about making sure the snow was clean--"No yellow snow!" Leigh informed everyone (or brown or purple, for that matter). Rooftops and fences seemed to be the preferred places for gathering snow to eat. Gotta stay hydrated!
Back in the classroom, several children decorated the papier mache sculptures we started before winter break. What could be cozier than a decoupage session with good friends? The only things we were missing were a fire and hot cocoa. What a dreamy way to start the week!
