Well, my goodness, that was one cheerful lot of children! Many thanks for gifting me their presence today. We sat at the table and re-introduced ourselves, with our names and something special about our birthdays (Ruby's choice. Her birthday is Halloween!). We recognized that Amiel and Mateo were not with us today. Your children figured out all the flavors they recognized in our herbal tea: ginger (hot and spicy!), anise hyssop (licorice flavor!), and lemon balm (lemon!). We cut apples so they revealed their stars; something the children had asked me if we could do this week. We're continuing to figure out the beginning outlines of an apple's reproductive structure.
