The kids had a 'Celebration of Learning' at school last night. They did a wonderful dance and then we returned to the classroom to build boats and determine if they sank or floated. It was so fun!! My mom drove all the way over to be there and ended up driving back the same night to avoid the ice that may come today. Thanks mom!!

This evening (unless I'm iced in) I will head to Detroit to be part of a Social Justice Immersion Spring Break trip. I will be joining an amazing group of 8 women (students) from Hope College learning about and experiencing first hand Urban Agriculture. I am very excited for this adventure (and a little sad...or a lot to be leaving the kids). Please keep our group in your prayers. I will be home late Saturday night. You can follow some of what we are doing on the blog of the community where we are staying.
