The very last day of school today. The little crafters worked in their visual journals.
We’ve been visual journaling daily this last week of school.
I love the photos from home so much. I know some are removed from frames or taken out of photo albums. I have a silent “don’t ask don’t tell” policy in place.
Plenty of love letters in these last days of second grade. I gobble them all up. Love upon love upon love. It’s a real banquet.
This year the coloring book was KING. I wonder what big idea will take root next year.
The gel pens have been wildly embraced.
Hearts poured out.
Big dreams finding places to live on the page.
This morning some of the kids began to spontaneously sing some Spanish nursery rhymes. It was so perfect. So dear.
At the end of the day they lined up for tight hugs. And then just like that the little birds flew out of their 2nd grade nest. I watched them go. A small flock rising from a field. Filling the sky with birdsong and chatter.
