What is this? It's recess time, but no children are swinging on the tire swing or slipping down the slide, shimmying across the monkey bars or climbing the tire wall! Instead eight children are huddled around the two cement flower containers that adorn the front entrance of the main building, and two more sit peacefully in the gazebo. Upon taking a closer look, each child is coveting a wood chip or twig. Using only God's gifts of nature and the edges of the flower containers the children are carving! With inspiring aspects of nature and vivid imaginations, the children are using their free time to carve out their own masterpieces; a heart, an otter, a platypus, a
fish, a pencil, a calligraphy pen (tip dipped in "ink" using the remnants of the
inside of an acorn), and the list goes on. There is no limit to the possibilities
that lie ahead for recesses to come.
