It was such an easy, fluid, peaceful morning. I kept walking around thinking, how beautiful is this. Meeting new people, inviting those who have come from somewhere else into the fold with such grace and love. So much cooperation was had, so much rekindling of relationships, and so very much joy shared.

Today at snack all the boys were at one table and all the girls at another and I overheard one of the boys commenting on this and as usual I launched into my spiel about how girls can sit with boys and boys (yadda, yadda, yadda) and then Alex pops out of his seat and says “I’ll fix that” and promptly moved to the “girl” table. You just gotta love this kids bravery and sense of self.

(Game time – they did this for an hour without even looking up. So very cooperative.)
