Hello folks! I see that it is a full month since I did a blog post! I am sorry about that. I’ll confess that my available time has been hugely crunched in November for family reasons. And there is so much I want to share about all that’s been going on! I need to find a way to create shorter or faster posts. The key, I know, is to get the kids doing it, so I’ll work on making that happen over the next week or two.
I will share that our trip to Calvin Park Library yesterday was lovely. The kids were delighted to get library cards and borrow books on their own, and I was delighted to see that! (We’ll likely go to the library again, maybe the downtown branch when it opens in the new year). Sarah, the librarian who presented to us, sent me an email commenting upon how great the kids were. Also, because Eric asked, she also added information about a workshop that is beginning soon. It’ll be fun, and it’s free! Three Tuesdays in December–registration this weekend!
Tuesday, December 4 – December 18, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Make animated Claymation movies! Over three weeks, design and create clay figures and sets, and film stop-motion animated movies. Filming will be done in small groups of 2 or 3, with one iPad per group. Bring your story ideas and we will provide the rest! Register for one or both sessions. For kids ages 8 to 13.
That’s it for now. I’ll do a longer post with pictures soon.
