David George Gordon, who wrote "Eat-a-bug Cookbook: 33 ways to cook grasshoppers, ants, water bugs, spiders, centipedes, and their kin." They watched the chef cook up some spicy spiders and crunchy grasshoppers. There were lots of "ewwws" as he was sizzling up his treats. Afterwards, we read some books, went to lunch, and then had some team building exercises - one called "putting the tennis balls on chair legs." It was so much fun and we discovered a lot of problem-solvers with this exercise. Luckily the rain held off and the kids had some outside time. When they came back in, it was time for the first chapter of "Junie B. Jones, First Grader at Last." Next, they had their first cooking lesson and made "Dessert Pizza" -- a delicious sugar cookie decorated with icing, sprinkles and M&Ms. What a grand ending to a great day!!
