Our first full day was full of adventure and surprises. We eased into the day by writing messages and playing with bugs. During morning meeting, we made plans to explore the Rainey Room together by taking a tour of the classroom.
Rachael asked the children give her a tour of the school, showing her their favorite places and things. The children were most enthusiastic about showing her the outdoor classroom—including a secret passageway.
Austin was also excited to show Rachael the bell tower, a special place that most of the children had never seen. On the way to the bell tower, we stopped to check out family collages in the entryway, and some of the children noticed a collection of tiles on the wall. Jill and Molly happened to be there and told us the history of the tiles. The climb up to the bell tower was dark, smelly, and steep, but we made it almost the whole way. Then it got a little too spooky. Molly climbed the last flight of stairs and snapped a photo of the bell. What an adventure!
The rest of the day was quiet and relaxed. We recounted our adventures, read stories and enjoyed being together.
