Tuesday was the last day of school. Pippi is a officially a first grader.
Pippi walked home with Jeffrey, who's going to be a world traveler for the next few years, for the last time. He will be missed. You know your child has a good friend when Pippi comes home saying things like, "Jeffrey's my friend, but he doesn't say I can't have any other friends." (Unlike many of the girls in her class.) Or "The other boys said it was a boys game, but Jeffrey let me play anyway." or "Jeffrey and I are working hard in school because we're gonna go to BYU."
Anyway, the kids truly enjoyed their last walk through "the woods" together.
They collected flowers.
They played with vines.
Vines make good tails, don't you think?
Of course, Bardo needed a "vine," too. By the way, you should hear the way he says "too." He's irresistable.
Ahem. That's an awfully big vine Bardo.
The children also found a baby tree. "It's a seedling." Jeffrey corrected.
And of course, what's a walk through the woods...
without a stop to climb trees....
And other things.Anyway, we'll miss Jeffrey and the rest of the Broadbent family. Don't forget us! But may you have many beautiful walks home from school with great friends wherever you go. And may you find even better trees (and other things) to climb.
