This week we celebrated America and today we went over the top to show our patriotism. In the morning, all the explorers hopped on the bus and took a field trip to Huntsman’s Park. After we arrived back at the school, we baked cookies that Jackson, Bridger, and Colter brought us. They were delicious! As a special treat in the afternoon, we lit off fireworks! It was so exciting to see all the different types. Then the younger explorers split off made Uncle Sam hats. The older explorers got dressed for water play but before we went outside, we painted our bodies with red and blue paint for Independence Day. The paint washed off during water play and we stayed and played in the hot sun with all our friends. It was a fantastic day!
