It all started with our Track and Field jump pits. Since we practice track and field only in the Spring, the pits became a great diversion for the younger students, who played and dug and built in the sand during recesses. The pits eventually grew in size, as their boundries were dug outwards. Last year, fearing for the safety of our jumpers, the school left the old pit to the diggers, and dug new jumping pits that are off limist to the diggers. Since then, the pit has become quite the industry among our grade 1-4 students. They had diggers and sellers, they trade space for "boulders" and are very competitive over who hits "clay" or wet sand before the others. When we get a good rain, there will be miniature lakes for a few days. I had to share a few pictures from Friday of last week. These are the crazy Digger Sandpits!

Here comes a busy week with 4 meetings between school and church. We also have a PD workshop an hour away on Friday. Whew! Have a great week everyone!
