Planting Day 2010

We are embarking on Phase 2 of the garden project. It's going to be really ambitious - we are going to turn the whole entire plot into edible landscape using the expertise of Truly Living Well . I am not a green thumb, but I am super excited. Please join us - families, friends, and neighbors - as we join together on Planting Day September 18 beginning at 9am-noon. We will have refreshments and garden items for sale made by our children. Above are some pictures of the Garden today. Not bad for beginners!

Life in the Crazy lane

We are gearing up for what may actually be a crazy next few days! We pride ourselves on being quite overstaffed, which is a huge help when people are sick or have other emergencies. Last week though, we were down two teachers: a teacher's husband was hospitalized, so she will be out for a few weeks. That sucks for us, I know...but in the grand scheme of things, who cares? The important thing is that he is okay. Two teachers down= we are okay! No major problems. Hopefully things will continue to go well. Friday we were 3 teachers down (one out of country, one scheduled vacation day, and one scheduled off). See how this works? Two down, we are okay. Three down, we can manage. More than that and we might be in trouble! We had an unprecented event in having to send staff a memo today that we are unable to approve any time off thru the end of September, barring of course, a true emergency!!
