Sahel Academy kicked off its new school year with a picnic. And, of course, our children were delighted to be there. One of my new friends and colleagues, Katherine (and that's Katherine, not spelled with a "y!") snapped (or allowed one of my wild ones) to snap, the following photos. I thought most of them were super cute, so here they are! Katherine is working for me in the Center for Academic Progress... in fact, because I'm only part-time at the school, she's carrying the bulk of the load of time with students and she's doing an awesome job... and she and I are both going to pick up a few more responsibilities as the other lady working with us in the Center had now been moved to a different position!
I've been enjoying getting to know her...
...maybe almost as much as Elsie Mae!

the mighty toad hunters
she really does love her big sis
