What a busy Labor Day! We did more labor than normal this labor day but had a lot of fun too. Emily was in the Charleston Regatta parade as usual. Her school, Piedmont Elementary always enters a float to highlight the great things going on there. Piedmont is an inner-city school with a very diverse population.
They were recently selected to be a NASA Explorer school. NASA promotes science and math in diverse schools by providing resources and curricula (and all sorts of other stuff too). It’s a pretty neat program and has helped Piedmont extablish a science magnet program within the school. Anyhow, someone at the school came upon a space shuttle which was incorporated into the float for this year.
Emily and the other teachers had a choreographed march they did in the parade. We had front row seats so we got to holler for her as she passed. After the parade, we went to the carnival on the river and the kids rode a few rides.
It was pretty hot so we didn’t stay long. Isaac loved the long slides but Abigail was a little more subdued on the carousel. We had a great time sending off this summer!
