Sarah Merrill brought her ducks to preschool today. It was so nice out, we got to play with them outside! And earlier this week one of our moms brought in chickens for us to see. It was a great week in the preschool.
The Lumen Christi Traveling Science Group visited our sixth grade yesterday, and it's obvious from the looks on their faces that everyone had a wonderful time (and learned some science). What a blessing they have been to our school. Thanks, LCCS students and teachers!

Quiet fun with books.
I can read, draw, explore, learn.
