We're glad to see October arrived at last, and, with it, hopefully some cooler weather.
At the end of September, though, we started our rock climbing program. The students did a great job bouldering and being harnessed in to go higher. Our expert student got a chance to lead others and be on belay. We are lucky to have him with us.
Everyone was excited and spent after an afternoon in the gym. Before the next session this Friday, we'll review the safety words and watching out for others. Rock climbing is also going to be a great way for us to learn to encourage friends working at all different levels of comfort.
This week, we headed to the Wildflower Center (though we were sad A couldn't join us due to a stomach bug).
And here's A with noun work:
And J taking a yoga break.
Last, as I'm sure you've heard from your child, we experienced a loss this week. Our mouse Ragweed passed away unexpectedly sometime Wednesday night. Here he is peeking out of E's shirt collar:
I'm sure we'll continue to discuss the loss of Ragweed and I will keep reminding the children as I did this week, "It's okay to feel sad. Feeling sad means Ragweed was loved."
I hope you all have a had a lovely and restful weekend. See everyone soon.
