The creek clean up was an amazing success, thank you all so much for coming out and lending a hand. Much gratitude to The Field and Stream Rescue Team – the afternoon would not have gone as smoothly without you there.
I love seeing a park full of kids’ not just kids on the play equipment but kids everywhere claiming the park as their place to play. My heart was a glow seeing kids in the trees and a whole gaggle of seven year old girls stomping in the creek. Awesome.
I look forward to the next event – I wonder what we will dream up next?
I wanted to share our walk to school because it is so not just a walk to school - it is play and it happens every single day. So here it is we walk, we talk, we meet up with friends, we explore and we take part in our community.
This is my daughter talking spot
and this is Texas (imagine he is holding the reins of a big black stallion)
I hope you all have great walks to school next week.
We hope you all had a fun time at the Halloween party. I loved seeing the park full of people and the kids running around in a wonderful amount of excitment and chaos. Thank you all so much for coming.
We are having an Easter party and we would like you and your kids to come.
When: April 16 at
Where: WellingtonParkat Hager Ave. and Baldwin St. by CentralHigh School
We will be making a craft, having an Easter egg hunt and other spring fun.
Tomorrow a photographer from the Globe and Mail will be coming to take some pictures – your consent is required. The images will accompany an article, written by Tralee Pearce addresses the “art of play,” and increasing interest in carving out time for kids’ freeplay. The piece will be in Fridays paper in the Life section.
See you all tomorrow it's looking like a beautiful day to get outside.
