sky seeds

yesterday was tashi's last day of school. there was a big ceremony at the school, as it was the last day in that particular location, after 16 years. the charlottesville waldorf school is moving out of its sweet perch at the foot of the blue ridge, into a new building on a beautiful parcel of land in town.

the balloons are bio-degradable and have native virginia wildflower seeds in them. each child tied a tag to the balloon with their name, grade and school contact info. the hope is that recipients of the balloons will notify the school and we'll find out how far some of them traveled.

it was a nice touch and quite spectacular to see all those shiny green wishes float off toward the blue ridge. bon voyage!
