A Salute to World Georaphy



This week we had the opportunity to go to a play at Luke's school. The kids each represented an an area of the world including continents, oceans, rivers, deserts, and mountains. Luke spoke of the dessert his line was "I'm from Australia sometimes I'm called the Outback the second largest in the world, that's me." They also sang a few songs. I caught one on tape below, if you have a chance please listen to what these kids had to say. I was very touched by the message they sent to us parents.




Some of the words in the song if you were not able to make it all out.

Still people go on closing their eyes.
Everything we do today will change our tomorrow and maybe when kids lead the way the whole world will follow. One by one, by one, by one.
We can change the earth together.
One by one, by one, by one.
We can keep her safe forever.
One by one, by one, by one.
The children everywhere.
One by one, by one, by one.
Now is the time to show the world we care.

People say we are only children.
People say why should we try.
Don't you see we are the future, why now we are depending on you.
Everything we do today can change our tomorrow and maybe when kids lead the way the whole world will follow and one by one, by one, by one we can change the earth together.

Very impressive tune and play!

Earlier that day John & I went on Leah's field trip at L.C Bates pond and museum. This is always a popular destination for kids and adults alike. Some of the kids caught a horned pout (cat fish) in the pond which was a rare find I think.

Great tune! I always enjoy going with the kids on their field trips. Had fun today! Wish the rain wasn't so heavy HA! We needed it though:)
