the first day of school

It's amazing. Our little school has run two full days now, and our first week of classes is already complete. The teachers, Leigh and Maria, came early and set the classroom up to welcome the children. When the students arrived, basins of water were ready for washing hands and dishes. Millet was soaking. And baskets of twigs, rocks, pinecones—just to mention a few of the wonders the classroom held—called the children into play.

Our two first days were a great success. We are so blessed.
