Nursery Newsletter (55)

This past week I found out a bit more about the Pajama Day that is being planned by several of the Nurseries. It is absolutely their own plan and has been shared with me only in passing... and as a foregone conclusion. Evidently it’s NOT going to be on a…
Tuesday we took a hike through the maze of paths some kind person has mowed through the tall grasses and other vegetation up on the Golf Course field… Nurseries were on a search for ripe milkweed to release into the breeze. On the way we found beautiful red clovers, lots…
It appears that Nurseries love pushing the merry-go-round as much as they do riding it. I saw a YGer (Younger Grouper) come and join them to sit in the very center while reading a book. It was already moving at that point and having a passenger seemed to inspire Nurseries…
This week, imaginative play using vinyl animals, cars and trucks, traffic signs plus anything magnetic all remain Nursery favorites while they play together inside.

After weeks of discussion, planning and anticipation, Pajama and Pancake Day finally happened on Thursday. Thank you, Brian, for griddle work, of course, and to parents for following along with the Nurseries’ plan… to help it all happen. We had another wonderful Sign Language session with Sarah on Friday.
