Today was a birthday in Cory's classroom (his friend Theo turned 6), so out came the apparently-now-traditional "birthday teepee." The class decorates it with streamers and I think there are other special activities too.
It warms my heart because this teepee was a class project (an auction project, actually) when Kellen was a 4-year-old in Barbara's class. Fifteen years ago! His name is painted on one side, next to his contribution to the decorating. (It's a little hard to see here, but it's printed in orange on the righthand side.)
