Welcome to October!!

This week we experimented with fruits and vegetables. We sampled papaya and starfruit. We also picked apples from our playground apple tree and made applesauce. We used our "wavy chopper" to chop up the apples. I cooked them while they were sleeping and then they used the food mill to make them into sauce. We had so much fun with it, that we did it again on Friday.

Finding our rhythm.

I cannot believe the month of September is over already.

I have been feeling so guilty lately that I haven't had more time, energy or inspiration for many blog posts. 
The truth is we are so busy... All. Day. Long!  If I even remember to pick up my camera during the day, there is certainly not enough energy later to pull my laptop out of the case.

It has officially been a month since many of our new friends started. We have a new teacher, a new intern and whole bunch of new friends. We have gone from being a classroom of 8 children to a classroom of 12 children. We had so many big kids leave for kindergarten this year and many new little friends start.  After a month of hustle and bustle I feel like we are finally starting to find our rhythm. 

Everyday drop-offs get easier. 
Tears are less and giggles are more. 
A beautiful thing is happening. 
We are becoming a community. :)
