Imagine grade school if Ranger Rick were the headmaster…the state’s only Forest School emphasizes the outdoors. Children from ages 2 to 6 play on logs and boulders, rather than slides and monkey bars. They help grow their own food on-site, and prepare it in a teaching kitchen led by a chef. They follow the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, choosing their class projects and gaining essential skills along the way. “Our belief is that if you can learn it inside, you can learn it outside,” says president Ilya Eydelman. “It’s more than just a school with trees around it—although we do have more of that than most.” (from stlmag.com)

    Baby is growing up – not a baby anymore! Maybe she needs a new name, like ‘Boss’ ;-)
    Cute outfits. Having had 2 boys, I missed out on the fun of dressing a girl. Little kids at Christmas is so much fun & your home is looking so festive in holiday trim. Love the tee-pee tree, brilliant!

      She is definitely the “Boss”!! haha She often dresses pretty tom-boyish (for Forest School, etc.) but it is definitely fun to indulge in sparkles, leopard print, etc.;) Smoochie surprised me with the lights on the teepee; it is great!
