I Recall Central Park in Fall


In Central Park with our new friends Matt and Margaret and their beautiful brood of 4

We took a tour where we learned of Seneca Village, a community that was located in Central Park before it became Central Park

And made toys out of sticks and strings, just like the kids in Seneca Village

And played with a storyteller who did
magical things with imagination and scarves


While Steve was learning of leadership, the kids and I wandered down to the boat basin near our apartment

And conducted scientific experiments complete with hypotheses: Would this acorn, crabapple, piece of concrete, etc. float or sink?

And watched sailboats glide by

And played "New York Gift Shop, would you like a t-shirt or a mug?"

And teeter-tottered until my legs couldn't take it anymore

Hey girl! I am so glad you met Matt and Margaret. They are a blast. I hope you had a great time. You'll have to tell me about it on Sunday.

See ya,

You guys look like you're having so many cool experiences. I'm a little jealous of all the amazing adventures you're taking your kids on. What a fun learning experience for them. We can't come to the service this sunday. I'm soooooo mad and sorry that we'll miss it. When are you headed back to the big city?
