summer picnic

A few Wooden Button students and parents had a small cookout (and planning meeting) yesterday at the home of our teacher, Leigh, in Chestnut Ridge. The children jumped on the trampoline, explored the garden, played in the sprinkler, and swung on the swing. We parents discussed the upcoming school year, grilled hamburgers, and generally enjoyed being out of the city.

Accept the children with reverence, 
educate them with love, 
send them forth in freedom.
