This is practically ancient history by now, as all of these end-of-year celebrations happened last week – however there were so many great moments I thought it still worth a post…
The children of the Lower School assemble for a Eurythmy performance by this year’s soon-to-graduate 12th grade
They begin their story with a spoken narrative…
Classic Eurythmy movement, with colored, flowing fabrics enhancing the flow of the gestures
Elihu’s class shows the third grade the new instrument they’ll be learning next year in fourth grade
Now we’re assembling in the High School Eurythmy room for the Rose Ceremony, marking the eighth graders graduation
The room looks lovely for the occaision
Jessalyn’s awesome eighth grade
The fourth graders get ready to sing for the assembly – someone’s pretty tired. !
But a little bit later he’s got his second wind…
at the big ol’ end of year picnic!
Such bounty! Everyone shared and there was a great assortment of tasty dishes
See how fancy these gals are!
The kids played for a long time in the woods
We will miss Dierdre so very much!!
This is the huge field with shelter beyond
Me and Ava, my wonderful piano student! She is a delightful girl…
Kai approaches me at top speed, completely covered in mud. I’d heard about this tradition… Oh-oh, here it comes!
The little kids follow the mudmen around, hoping to get some of that magic, 12th grade mud on them too
Fiona’s got Kai’s back. !
Off they go…
Sean and Trek are also inspired to get dirty. Note: they were both having fun. I know, cuz I asked.
Abby got some special mud…
And Sadie, well, there are no words. Well, maybe one. Adorable? Yeah, think that’s the one.
These cutie pies are so in the spirit
Serious jamming here
Jackson on banjo (above Elihu)
Jackson made that rope braid for my hat band
A nice group!
But these guys are in it for the long haul…
Until something cooler comes along, that is…
Finally it was time to go home. The clouds pointed the way for us quite nicely.
