Our new school year started on time in mid-September, with eleven children in the Children’s House.
We were concerned in mid-summer that COVID restrictions would make reopening this fall nearly impossible, but in August the guidelines were relaxed. No children of this age are required to wear face coverings, nor are the adults supervising them.
The children’s temperatures are checked at the door every morning, and we do not allow parents to enter the building. If any children show symptoms of illness we ask their parents to keep them home.
So with those protocols in place, our program kicked off on time. About one month into the year a twelfth child joined us.
So our year is going well with seven girls and five boys, and a daddy long legs.
That is, the sensation one morning was a daddy long leg sighting, which brought everything else to a halt as everyone had to stop and look.
We may incorporate some lessons on insects of this type some time soon to ride the wave of the intrigue.
But beyond the daddy long legs sensation the beginning of the year has been very ordinary.
Thanks be to God.
