It’s cats! Bring a picture of your cat (if you have one), cat stuffies, cat masks – you know, just, alllllll the cat-themed materials – and let’s hiss together.
Dress as a cat, if you wish. I’ll find some cat art projects, coloring or drawing pages to bring. If anyone else has something specific to contribute, that’s great. It’s a last-minute change, so I’m scrambling here!
We’re also celebrating National Ravioli Day. If you’d like to participate, bring a package of ravioli – or be the one to craft it from scratch – and the preferred topping for yours. With enough interested parties, we’ll assemble a ravioli tasting + use a zillion bowls again.
Special notice: This week we’ll be gathering in a circle at 10:30am to introduce everyone + discuss who to turn to when we have problems in the group. It’s not going to be real deep, don’t worry. But I’d like to get circling established as a way to talk through bigger issues as they arise and it seems best to start the practice without one. Prep your kiddo that we’ll be doing this + introducing ourselves – I don’t want it to be scary! I’ll also encourage the younger kiddos to lean on the older ones when they need help. We have a great group of older kids + it’s often easier to ask them for help than an adult. Please be open, prepared to discuss whatever might come up here. While you’re here, reading this, it’s been suggested that we open our group with a circle every week, even just to discuss the day’s schedule. If you have strong feelings about this, please let me know.
This week, please bring:
