Fossil Fun!

We had an awesome time yesterday digging up some dinosaur bones! Just like paleontologists, nine teams of kids worked very hard to dig the bones out of hard, red clay. They cleaned the bones and then very carefully put the skeletons together. We discovered three triceratops, three tyrannosaurus rexes, and three stegosauruses. Awesome job to everyone who came out to dig!



Keep Up the Awesome Reading!

After just 3 1/2 weeks of summer reading, we have 243 participants who have logged in a total of  148,467 Pages! 18 readers have already met the goal of 2013 pages and many more are well on their way. We are so proud of all our readers! Keep logging in those pages so we have have a huge pasta party on August 21st!

More gardening fun!

Yesterday we had more helpers who braved the mosquitoes to help in the garden. They dug up, separated, and transplanted some of our big plants (including our mystery squash vine) in order to give them more room to grow. They also staked and tied up our tomato plants that are starting to grow some big tomatoes. 


 


All of the kids are doing a fantastic job of helping our plants to grow! Remember, you can drop by at any time this summer and help out in the garden. There is always something to do!
