Our community relations coordinator called the local paper, the St. Augustine Record, and the reporter and photographer came to photograph the entire event from the ground.
It was SO hot outside and not all the students had their pinwheels because we thought the event would have to be postponed for picture day. Despite all of that, we were able to share a moment of silence, a fourth grader, Lexi, shared a beautiful poem she wrote about Peace, and we sang the Song of Peace that our fabulous music teacher, Ms. Dowdie taught the students during music. One of our second grade teacher's husband flew his plane over and took the picture for us and I when I saw it this morning, I almost cried with pride, joy and relief!!!
And AS IF, Pinwheels for Peace weren't enough this week, TODAY was Talk Like a Pirate Day!! I got the honor of having Captain Mayhem (a real St. Augustine pirate!) sign sketch for the chalk drawing that I made for the Chalk Walk last May!!! Such an exciting (and exhausting) WEEK!!!
