The children took a trip to an Italian warehouse that is located in the Bronx. I did not even know that it was there! The Bronx is full of surprises and great opportunity. There is something new to learn every day about the neighborhood that you live in. If you spend your time shunning your habitat or surroundings, you never know all the good that is actually there.
When we got there, there was a very sweet group of people waiting to greet us with Italian accents. They all were spoiling the children. Which I think was good for the kids. They don’t get spoil at the center much. We made our own pasta that was suburb! And then ate some chocolate that was just scrumptious.
When the children went for a walk on the track, one of the teachers stopped us to inform us of the Parakeets that live at Pelham Bay Park! They live in the flood lights facing the baseball and football field. Unfortunately, we did not hear them talk and I don’t think they talk but we did collect a few feathers for our scrap-book.
Today was the annual trip to the Pelham Bay Park and this is where the children found the big, fat, green caterpillar.
Miss Lilly, Miss Lilly! Look what Emy got!
Inside of the cup was a caterpillar.
‘Can I keep it?!’
