Last Day!

Our last day of school was spent enjoying sunshine and friendship at the park near the school. We played and ate yummy snacks. On Thursday we even got to walk through a path in the "woods" near our school. It was fun!

Have a great summer!

Young Athletes Celebration

On Friday, we spent the day celebrating with our Young Athletes finale. We had a day full of fun rotating around the stations: playing with the parachute, kicking and throwing, going through an obstacle course, eating a snack and dancing. We felt very special during our opening and closing ceremonies. Thank you to all of the parents who joined us and helped us!

The pictures from AM and PM are in different slideshows because Miss Stephanie took SO MANY pictures. She just loves to take pictures!

Farm and Turtles!

This week we continued to work on farm activities. We finished up painting with various vegetables and began painting farm animals.

We painted with green peppers, potatoes, carrots, and broccoli.

We painted "mud" on pigs (shaving cream, glue, and paint).
We marble painted on cows.
We painted with a feather on a duck.

On Friday morning we had an exciting morning on the playground. We found two baby turtles! We were so excited to find them and we brought them inside and put them in our empty aquarium. One of them was not moving so much, but within a few hours it really perked up! The two tiny adorable turtles were running around the aquarium and seemed to be enjoying the food we gave them. We kept them all day and had a lot of fun watching them. At the end of the day we decided to let them go and bring them back out to the swamp. Since we weren't going to keep them forever (Miss Stephanie wasn't sure what she would do with two grown turtles at some point) we didn't want to get them used to living inside. We didn't think it was fair to let them get used to living inside and then let them go in the wild, so we let them go on Friday. They were lots of fun though!

Enjoy lots of pictures from our activities this week and especially the turtles at the end!
