Good afternoon families,
Here is an inspirational passage for the week:
In our grasshopper and salamander days, who among us didn’t ask why the grasshopper could jump so far – or why the salamander had black dots on its orange body? We trampled leaves with our feet just to hear what kind of sounds leaves made. We threw flat stones over the surface of streams to see how far the stones could skip. We listend to crickets cry in the nights far beyond our grasp of what the darkness was. We slept, only to wake, with the stange sense of how could we be awake when we had only just been sleeping.
In those days we knew as much as we had to know in order to ask what we didn’t know. Our ignorance wasn’t just innocence but the foundation from which we offered ourselves the daily surprise of discovering another question, another way to uncover something mysterious, something we hadn’t understood yesterday. We lived by wonder, for by wondering we were able to multiply a growing consciousness of being alive.
- Richard Lewis, Living by Wonder
Our Spring Day Long in San Francisco at the Fort Miley Ropes Course was just great. It was sweet, fun, sweaty and there were no injuries! Yay! The weather could not have been more perfect. The sun was shining and we could see blue sky, blue ocean, and the golden gate bridge clearly. It was warm but not too warm and we had a nice breeze to sweep over our physically tired bodies...
