Here are some pictures from our May 24th adventures.

We attempted some chemistry experiments that didn't have the results we expected so we talked about the scientific method and how even scientists have some disappointment when their experiments do go as planned.

Our amazing group of children came up with their own obstacle courses and presented them. (Watching their amazing creative minds at work is always my favorite part of our time together).

We had some great time time with fine motor skills and patience as we built some impressive block creations.

We even took a virtual trip to the Taj Mahal and tried out some yummy Indian inspired dishes.

Here is a lovely photo assortment of the high energy adventures we had last week!

We had a soccer game, we spent some lovely time outside at the high-school track and played football and even tried our legs out with some challenging races and the long jump. We had some great fun challenging each other with board games, played sharks and minnows, and so much more!

Our last day of Friday Friends is tomorrow! We have a really fun day planned. Please check it out and make sure you bring a towel and change of clothes for our water balloon fight as it looks like the weather is finally going to cooperate.

We will be having a pizza party in place of our afternoon snack, we will provide pizza and drinks. If you would like, you can bring a treat or a side item.

Oh my, I guess the countdown has begun! Sadly, only 3 more Friday's remain this year.

Here is our plan for tomorrow. Though, the weather may direct a change to the water balloon fight. We will adapt as necessary.

We played heads up 4 up!
We had reading time with Mrs. Terri.
We had fruit pizza! Yum!
We had our walk at the high-school trail, where we found slugs, a morel, beautiful rocks, and practiced making turkey calls.

They watched Ellia and her friend do a short rehearsal for today's performance at the middle school. (2 pm at the middle school cafeteria it is free).

They helped make mint lemonade and learned about herbs from master gardeners who came to visit. They made herb blends to add into homemade ranch.

They also made felt projects and had a silly time with googly eyes.

We had a visit from Angie the beekeeper visit and learned some really amazing facts about bees and how wonderfully complex they are.

We had a super fun relay race that resulted in lots of laughs!
