Ode to the Sparkling Icicle
Oh how the water trickles down branches
And forms you lovely, sparkling icicles.
But when winter is over, you melt,
Until next year.
Oh exquisite, elegant icicle.
Ode to Cinnamon Buns
You are a lovely roll up of cinnamon and cream,
How you melt in my mouth, when I bite into you,
You pair perfectly with the Sunday morning routine,
Oh sweet morning treat,
What would I do without you!
We made it through the winter, kiddos! During our LAST week of the winter session of Lego Club, we learned about the Pony Express (holiday that takes place on 4/3) and built our own ways to deliver the mail. We had quite the creations today! See them for yourself below:
This was our LAST week of Lego Club while the children's room takes a break to plan for our Spring Programming cycle, starting Monday, April 28!

I Tried to Catch a Butterfly
I tried to catch a butterfly
I know I cannot tell a lie
So here is how the story goes
It is a long one; it ends at your toes
The butterfly flew over a large plain
And landed in a horse's mane
Then it soared over the trees
I had to protect myself from angry bees
The butterfly fluttered over a flower
Just then came a heavy rain shower
It flew over a pasture and rested on the fence rail
While up from the ocean dove a large whale
The whale greeted us happily, then returned to the water
But not before introducing us to her father
In the end, the butterfly flew away
I'll just catch it some other day
Friday, March 28 is Barnum & Bailey Day so our theme today coincided with that by using circus as our challenge! Today, there were tightropes, human cannons, tents, trapeze swings, and even more! Check them out below:
Next week is the LAST week of Lego Club for the Winter Session! Come check us out before we go on "vacation"!
