In May we celebrated the last three birthdays of the year at the preschool.
For Fritz - a deer tucked in a crocheted pouch
For Banneker - a cat
For Audrey - a cat
I love the anticipation and joy on each childs face as they unwrap their birthday gift. Even though each child has received (basically) the same gift (a wooden animal in a knit or crocheted pouch) and they know what they may find in the birthday box, there is still so much excitement and surprise at seeing what is inside. To see all of the gifts we made check here to see them on Flickr.
Yesterday was our May celebration. Usually held on May first, we changed the festival to the last day of school. We did not want a repeat of last year where it snowed as we tried to picnic, do circle and make egg carton cup flower garlands. It was very sad and May first this year was just as cold. Yesterday, however, we reached a balmy 88 degrees and the children fully enjoyed themselves playing with friends, running through the grass and making pinwheels. Sadly, I have no photos of the event, but if you are a friend on facebook, you can see some photos that the parents took.
June tomorrow! I can hardly believe it. I start teaching my summer camps at the preschool on Monday already. If you live locally and would like your child (age 3-6) to take a class, click here for more information. I teach all the June camps and my teaching partner the ones in July. We always have a great time. I'll be sure and post our projects as they happen.

Happy end of May!!
