Today was gorgeous so we spent every minute we could outside. Austin asked why we got to play outside for so long. Because it's good for you! Sunshine gives you vitamins, trees make us fresh clean air, and being outside just makes you feel happier. Then we came inside for a group snack and finished reading the terribly exciting story about Armstrong, the space mouse. We shared with the children that since we only had a few more days of school left anyway, we would be starting spring break a little early so we can stay healthy in the coziness of our homes. The children are very excited to have extra time with families. Take care and we look forward to seeing you soon!
