David Sobel Tuesday Night

I know that it's tough. You leave work, you pick up your kiddo at FSP after-school care, you need to find something for everyone to eat and you look at the clock– 6:30pm. You had been planning to go to the Parenting for Peace event. You are interested in that place-based education stuff that Corie and Nicole talk about. You even told Kim you'd be there. But now there's dinner to make and you forgot to sign up for child care and who's going to miss you anyway?

I WILL!

Make a bunch of PBJ's, or grab a pizza from Ricetta's, get back in the car and come to Mackworth Island. Even though you forgot to sign up for childcare... we still have two trained adults that we're paying to watch your kiddos. The event is free. You will learn about great activities that you can use as you teach your kids about being a strong part of their communities and loving and taking care of the Earth. You will have a greater sense of ownership at FSP when you understand the philosophy of the teachers.

So where are you going to be at 7pm Tuesday night? Carter Hall! Thanks, I'll see you there. Anna

Love your sense of humor (and marketing!), Anna! You've convinced me that I'll be there.

Just a reminder --

Tomorrow, Oct 19 at 7pm FSP welcomes David Sobel to Carter Hall. David will present place-based education information and activities from his new book “Wild Play-Parenting adventures in the great outdoors”. This event is free and open to the public.

Please consider inviting a friend - -it is a great way to introduce FSP to others!

And please try to come, even if you already Play-Wild and need no advice. I think the issues are really about how to create community spaces and cultivate a sense of stewardship among us and it will be such a more rich discussion if our community grapples with it in a genuine way...

Thx, Kim
