Happy Fourth of July weekend!

So far, so good!  I'm enjoying the time at home.  Tomorrow is the Festival for the Eno, so I'm sure you will all see pictures posted soon!
   No fireworks in Chapel Hill this year due to budget, and with the drought, fire officials are discouraging home fireworks.  The kids in ESY made their own craft and watched a firework video.  We had a great time.  It was a simple craft, but the small group lesson was expanded a bit to cover some literacy, background knowledge, and following directions.
     As always, we threw in a little technology--iPad, Boardmaker, YouTube, and Tarheel Reader.

Have a nice July 4th!
