PLANTING MILKWEED WITH CAMILLA MACFADYEN AND THE SARROUFS!

img_4947img_4937Thank you to Dawn and John Sarrouf for sharing their milkweed planting photos. They are visiting their friend Camilla at her family home in Small Point Maine, which sounds like, from Dawn’s description, a gorgeously beautiful location, and ideal Monarch habitat. There are fields of wildflowers, and Seaside Goldenrod grows just as easily in the rocky outcroppings there as it does on Eastern Point. After looking at maps, it appears as if you could draw a virtual straight line from Small Point to Eastern Point. Dawn and friends spotted about ten butterflies yesterday. Perhaps we’ll be the next stop (after the predicted rainfall).

The East Gloucester fifth grade class play is one in which the younger grade students look forward to participating, beginning in their earliest elementary years. This year’s play, William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, directed by Dawn Sarrouf, does not disappoint, and is simply beyond outstanding. Every minute is filled with action packed stellar performances by the fifth grade students, exquisite costumes, imaginative lighting and special effects, and all playing to a rhythmical back stage drum beat.

Don’t miss the final performance on Monday, April 4th at 6pm at the East Gloucester School auditorium.

Sunday Afternoon Chocolate Party

Our hot cocoa party quickly became a chocolate party when Nicole Duckworth arrived with a platter of chocolate-dipped-and-delicious strawberries, pineapples, and bananas (and I had as usual doubled the amount of chips in the chocolate chip cookies). I so hope the kids fall asleep tonight!
