We Explore Seeds

  • 4-5-13: This was a really good group of mostly older kids - I got a group from a nearby town that came for the first time and had 4K in the afternoon. 25 people was a really good number for it being senior travel day and no parking available! We did the opening song twice, so I didn't end up doing Planting a Rainbow.
Opening music: "List of Dances" by Jim Gill from Jim Gill makes it noisy in Boise Idaho

Introduction, welcome, and announcements: Clifford party next Wednesday, next We Explore is Giant Boxes.
