"As we start to see the buds on plants begin to open and small purple crocuses push through the undergrowth we take the time to enjoy the life that awakens with the coming of Spring. This Month we are focused on the world of light and shadows.
At Theler I've loved getting to sit down with our students as they weaved together elaborate and hilarious stories with their shadow puppets during our shadow puppet theater. I was encouraged by their shrieks of laughter and their willingness to let each of their friends have a turn. They set up scenes for their shadow characters to interact with as their audience waited patiently for the stories to begin.
At Illahee I had the opportunity to see our students create beautiful artworks out of colorful mosaic pieces. They would gasp in excitement as I brought out flashlights and they were able to see how the light made their artwork sparkle with color. I loved hearing them talk to each other about which loved one they would like to give their finished art to.
I am excited to see where the rest of this month takes us as we enter the time of new beginnings and new growth."
