December 19. Birthday Blog.
This is a blog about the project of opening a little Montessori school on the sunny island of Aruba, the making of materials for the school, and other random goodnesses. Today is the birthday of this blog!
This is the school hiding behind some trees.The foliage is courtesy of the uncharacteristic December showers we have been experiencing. Although difficult to spot in the picture, the yard boasts 6 newly planted trees. David helped me plant them- He worked the pickax through the coral, pulled his back carrying the trees, and I stood around and said where to put them.
These are the front doors of the school that already say "Hello!". The windows are supposed to be coming in "sometime this week" 2-3 weeks ago.
The building is an original Aruban house from the 1950's that we are renovating and slightly remodelling to accommodate one environment for 3-6 year olds, and a 0-3 classroom in the future.
The expected opening day is September 1, 2008.
Welcome to the project.
