Samuel and Dylan decided to give Pinky more hay to eat. We could tell that everyone had missed Pinky. 

Welcome back! We hope you all had an amazing Spring break, filled with adventures near and far. We had such a smooth transition back today- everyone was ready to work and play (and get ready for our very busy week next week- Week of the Young Child!). 

Just a re-cap of our special events happening all next week:

Monday: Music Monday- we will be having a special time with Josie sharing finger plays and songs with us (we'll get you a time asap in case you'd like to join us). We'll also be making some of our own instruments and listening to music from all over the world. Suggestions welcome!

Tuesday: Tasty Tuesday- we will be making vegetarian tacos and quesadillas! We'll also make our own lemonade, and maybe a special after-lunch treat. 

Wednesday: Work Together Wednesday- We will be working on fundraising for the charity Hopes & Heroes with some special artwork and books for sale (all made by the children!)

Thursday: Messy Thursday- we'll be working on tie dye shirts, painting in our diapers on a large canvas on the floor, and working with oobleck! 

Friday: Family Friday- our special person/grandparent day. From 9-10 we welcome you to bring a family member (Moms and Dads are totally fine!!!) or family friend to join us for a special breakfast, planting activity, and free play. 

Let me know if you have any questions. 

So happy just hanging out with each other.
