Our last day of co-op was a whirlwind, as usual! The first activity was making some necklaces out of noodles, shells, stickers, and other random doodads. The kids all got a chance to play one more time with their favorite toys–trucks, the ball castle, the water table, the baby dolls–then Gail rang the clean-up bell and we gathered at the table for a snack. After a romp out on the grass and a quick photo session on the steps, Gail (who is celebrating her thirtieth year at the coop! Amazing!) put on a little end-of-the-year ceremony, calling each little buddy onto the bridge to get their necklace, and then we cheered ‘Hip hip hooray!’ for them. A round of high fives, and co-op is over until the fall.
We will look forward to seeing everyone over the summer at the park!
