Last Thursday friends bundled up to prepare for fieldwork during temperatures that barely peaked above the teens. They shared sweatshirts, hats, scarves, coats, and gloves with each other. They compared layer totals with each other–“I have eight shirts!” “I have tights and pants and leggings!”
Unfortunately, the bus never showed.
So tomorrow, we’re off again. We will leave at 9:00 on the dot and will return to school in time for lunch. Friends should still dress warmly even though the temperatures will be in the low 40s. Let the layer competitions continue!Last week’s bus issues and below freezing temperatures didn’t get in the way of us heading to Fort Slocum, the Rock Creek extension that neighbors our school. Ms. Fay led friends in playing Motions Telephone, Oscar organized a game of tag, Lucy organized a game of fishing, and eventually, everyone rolled down the hill back to school. See you tomorrow.
