Postponement—June 1

Please note that the Variety Show has been postponed for one week until Wednesday, June 1 in the hope of having better weather.

We sent this note home with your child just in case you don't see it here on the blog.

The show is scheduled to begin at 5:00, as before.

Well! How 'bout all that rain in late May? Pretty unusual in these parts, or at least it used to be pretty unusual.

Still it was Ryan's day. He brought a fantastic drum, a Tabla and played it with me at the beginning of class and again later on it the day for Andrew, our music teacher. Ryan's a good percussionist.

In addition to his drum, Ryan brought a pop-up book about the Apollo Moon Landing program. The book captured the imaginations of the class as I read it to them. It's hard for me to believe that the space program got underway when I was a kid more than fifty years ago. Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon a few weeks after I got out of high school.  To recall that our manned Space Shuttle program will soon end—wow, what a journey!

Anyhow, here's Ryan holding up his book.

Ryan also lost a tooth today.

Thanks for documenting Ryan loosing his tooth! He has swallowed the last two! He told me he felt so special today. Thank you for that. It is so nice to have the blog to know what is going on and the kids love it too!

Hi Shari, you're welcome. I like doing the blog for that reason and also just to take a moment to reflect on the day.
