Lotta birds

The robins are growing. We just have one nest on the playground this year – the gutter nest. I think there are three babies but I can’t get close enough to get a good picture.

I came home tonight and there was a baby robin on the back porch. He was mostly-feathered with just a little bit of fuzz. He looked so, so adorable and messed up. You go, life. Just keep on keepin’ on.

All done. (Mostly.)

Well, it is 97% over. If it weren’t for our family and friends, this would have been a disaster. An enormous ‘thank you’ to our peeps! Lloyd was brilliant. He took the bull by the horns and made this whole mess workable. Sam was fantastic. He was the other half of the big get-‘er-done Boss […]

Ever closer…

I am so indebted to all the people who helped move stuff from the Marxhausen studio and storage shed onto the playground today. It was a monumental task and I am so relieved that it is done. Now on to tomorrow, and then Saturday. I am always dreading something.

A mysterious vandal

image

This morning when we gathered for our morning meeting, the children pointed out that someone had written on my easel. (I never write on it because I don’t need little kids going home and saying that Mrs. Sommerer says it’s ok to write on furniture.) Anyway, I was the last one out of the building […]
