With baseball season ending in victory, the children have moved onto football. While this is a great opportunity to strengthen bodies, sharpen gross motor skills, and let out energy, but the sportsmanship has been the most rewarding to watch develop. Teams don’t seem to matter when it comes to encouraging a friend or checking on a fallen player. Some children seem to truly love all things about the sport, while others just like playing with their friends, and all are welcome.
If anyone has an old football lying around consider donating it to the St John’s training camp!
We had more Mystery Guests today, Kian’s grandparents from Florida! The children had many stories of their own about Florida and then his grandparents showed us pictures of all of their cows and we learned their names. We tried to guess which cow Kian named; it was Coconut. We also saw Chocolate, Molly and Candy to name a few. The children have gotten so comfortable with our Mystery Guests and could probably fill the whole time sharing stories and asking questions, but there was a silly book about farm animals going on strike that our guests brought to read.
