For a few weeks, Emilia has really pioneered a new soccer trend in the outdoor classroom. Gigi loves to kick the ball, so she joined second. Wolfie M came soon after - he's got excellent aim. Soon, Wolfie B, Palmer, Cannon, Grace, and Lane came over. They discussed what their team names could be.
Emilia: We’re both on the same team, Gigi, so we got a lot of points!
Cannon: All the boys be T-Rexes. And all the girls be mammals.
Emilia: Boys are going to be sharks... Girls are going to be Kit Kats…
Grace: No, Skittles.
Eventually they settled on the T-rex Team and the Candy Team! Our version of soccer has about 9 balls. We have two goals, but often no goalie. We like to pretend we are "referees" and shout "GO WOLFIE" from the sidelines. Hopefully as we keep practicing we can start playing with just 1 ball, and research some of the rules of traditional soccer.
If any older siblings would like to come in and explain the real rules... we would be grateful! For now, we are just having a blast.
Get Well Soon Brooke!
Brooke is unfortunately not is good shape at the moment - she hurt her wrist and had to go to the doctor. The children were very concerned to hear this. They left a message for her at morning meeting on the phone.
Emilia: Hi Brooke we really love you.
Lane: I hope your hand is feeling better soon.
Wolfie B: How you feeling?
Palmer: Hope you're feeling better soon.
Grace: I hope you feel better.
Evelyn: I love you.
In the studio, we made beautiful messages for Brooke with collage and drawing materials. While Oliver made his message, he said, "I made a wrist because Brooke's wrist is hurting. Sounds like it hurts." I showed him the picture of her arm in a sling and he said, "Why is she lying down? When I was hurt, they didn't give me any sugar. I think she's really sick. I think I have a message. Why's that black thing on her sleeve? Is it healing her wrist?"
Wrapping a gift to Kurt (who works in the church office). Images of clay are from before we glazed. We gifted him candles and a vase too. He loved it!
