"She's on an airplane to come back!" - Janie
We have been anxiously awaiting Cedar's return from Kenya! Cedar's departure back in January was a launching point for many of our ongoing explorations/projects, but we have been missing her terribly. Cedar's journey and time in Kenya has given us so much to think about in terms of connections, travel, messages, relationships, how we care for and connect with our friends, where we/our families travel to and live, and so much more.
The children and adults were all so excited to see Cedar and Jecca peek through the window. Cedar was kind enough to bring crackers to share with all of us at snack, and they were delicious. We are so happy to have our Cedar Bug, and her family, back in the Brown Room!
Lochie, and many of the children, shared some reflections from our conversations about Cedar's travels. They showed her our wall of maps, messages, post office photos, etc. Lochie shared some of his theories about how the messages might get to Kenya, and Jecca let us know that they did not quite make it to them (they will see them in the summer).
We also welcomed Lochie back today! While Lochie was gone for a shorter time, he was greatly missed. The children have been asking about him and creating messages for him, which he received in the mail on Saturday morning. Lochie entered with joy and smiles this morning, which brightened our day from the very beginning!
Please join us in welcoming both of our beloved Brown Room friends back to class!
