The photos show our first and second grade celebration of Earthday. My own celebration was to carry the camera along and take photos of emergent life. The top photo is of a small hickory tree with its first leaves of the year. Last year the leaves were all killed by late frost, so it is a pleasure to see a more normal spring. Below are our students gathered around the stone table made by our high school students last year. Outdoor education and time in the outdoors exploring and imagining are an important part of development that is being ignored in most schools.
