This afternoon, there was a special event at Sophia and Avery's school to celebrate the Week of the Young Child. Each of the learning groups had special t-shirts and their own style of ladybut hat. Here are the Tiger Cubs. Sophia is center front row. Cousin Leo was not into wearing a hat or special t-shirt, his transformer yellow car was most important today.
Getting so many preschoolers and parents ready for a walking field trip was very much like, as Dave would say, "herding cats." And I remembered why I'd always been drawn to teaching students in the upper grades.
Why walk when you can get a ride?
Capitol Park Rose Garden. The capitol dome is barely visible in the background.
Avery probably enjoyed the drinking fountain more than the ladybugs.
