First Annual Grandparents’ Day
Parents’ weekend is coming up soon, but what about all the people who have grandchildren at Gould? Not long ago Becky Cummings decided we should host a Grandparents’ Day. I don’t think I’m revealing any secrets in sharing that she thought we might have 10-12 grandparents come to campus for the day. Instead we’re looking forward to welcoming 92 grandparents to campus on Tuesday! Ninety Two!
Our son has had his own grandparents weekend with a visit from his father’s parents and brother and, the day they left, the arrival of my parents. Nothing makes this 2 year old happier than visits from his grandparents. I hope our Gould students enjoy their grandparents as much as Reiley does. I’m looking forward to meeting them.
A quick Farm and Forest update: All the spring babies are born. We have 3 lambs, Lolly, Licorice, and Lipton. Our 2 cows gave birth to bull calves, Charcoal and Cinders. The Angora bunnies were shorn and plucked a few weeks ago and the students tried their hand at spinning wool. The hens are laying about 24 eggs a day, which are going to the dining hall for weekend brunch and to the Mouse and Bean (a local coffee shop/bakery). We’ve completed a drainage project to improve a small garden, and we’re starting to work the soil in preparation for planting.
Between Trustees meetings, Grandparents visiting, and soon parents too, this place full of energy.
Until next week,
