No matter the weather, you know it’s Spring at Tobin Montessori when Children’s House students are hosting SPRING TEA.
For the second year in a row, *I* am ClaraJane’s chosen “guest.”
The tables are set, cookies are baked, fruit kabobs prepared, china tea cups readied and “formal attire” requested. ClaraJane gravely greets me at the door, “Welcome to our Spring Tea,” escorting me to our table by the hand, pulls out my chair and takes my “order” from Le Menu.
Watching my daughter practice her Grace and Courtesy, I swoon.
Now for the business of elegant dining with your four year old.
Serious business. Until she bops over to my side of the table for photos!
I’d thought for us to have matching braids, but in the end matching pigtails seemed the order of the day.
Students all around the classroom enjoy their parent or “Special Guest,” including dear friend Victor and his Daddy, Lou.
In the classroom I love this poster, with each of their names on a paper hand corresponding to the rainbow of colors that make up the class:
And to ClaraJane, the most prolific story teller of all; THANK YOU for Spring Tea!
