Melting into Summer

19 May

Today was our all-school picnic and field trip to the local zoo.  We took the trip twice today.  Once with all of the morning students and again with all of the afternoon students.  It was enjoyed by all, and the children were on their best behavior with their listening ears engaged.  My hand was held, hugs were given and received, and laughter was the most rewarding sound of the day.

And… We couldn’t have asked for better weather as we started our day. 

The sun was shining, the breeze was light and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.  As the morning turned to afternoon, the sun continued to shine with increasing vigor, and the temperature approached a sweat-inducing 92 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Tomorrow is last day of school with my preschoolers, and the weather promises to be about the same.

We are definitely melting into summer.  Or at least I am.

Thank goodness for sunscreen, popsicles and ice cold water.

P.S.  Start your summer off  by watching this video: Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle.  It is one of my favorites!

    Little Dude desperately wants to come and visit all of you again. And the animals. Yes, he is in love with your zoo.

    Sounds like a wonderful day! … You’re sure going to miss those kids, huh?

    I am already imagining my unborn granddaughter being in pre-school. Heck, I practically have her married. I have to stop rushing things. I used to love it when it was my turn to help at pre-school. The kids are so sweet at that age. Glad you had fun.

    After Dominic saw the tricycle movie in preschool last year, we watched it all summer on youtube. So cute.
