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:
