Today was our Harvest/Ancestor party. A bit more than 50% of the parents were able to come and 4 of the Dad’s were there which was a grand treat!
Such a gift to have you all with us. The excitement with the children was high from this and we were still able,mostly, to be present with the many things that took place during the day: making a fire by hand drill, gathering wood, tending the fire, chopping the vegetables, filling the pot of water, sharing stories of where each persons dish came from, eating together, cleaning up together, just socially spending time together, and then putting the fire out with water and stirring, stirring, stirring it out really well.
Michelle and I thank you all for your participation, whether you were able to be there in body or not.
