Hi Ho Hi Ho...A Digging We Will Go

For the past 2 days students have been working hard to dig up all the grass and weeds to prepare our garden beds which cover approximately 900 square feet.  As we carry the shovels and rakes out to the garden, students have begun singing the 7 Dwarfs classic," Heigh Ho" song and creating their own garden appropriate lyrics.  This is very hard work, but we're making it as enjoyable as possible, even if we sing off key.  The kids have been troopers sweating temperatures in the 90's with full sun and lots of humidity. Unfortunately the soil is mostly hard clay which makes the digging slower and more difficult so singing, dance parties, jokes, and conversation make our time together full of memories.
