This summer has been full of exploration, hard work, and fun, but sadly, like all things, it is coming to an end. As Jingling and I wrap up the work we have done in these past 10 weeks, we thought it would be nice to look back at some highlights and our favorite moments this summer.
We kicked the summer off with an alumni tour where we got to meet a lot of former Skidmore students, from different walks of life and in different stages of their lives. It was a very enjoyable walk full of good company. Towards the middle of the summer we went downtown to hand out pesto samples we made at home using garlic mustard. It was great getting to meet some of the people we see in the woods so often, and you helped us a lot by filling out our survey. Our last event, and one of our favorites, was watching WALL-E outside the Tang. It was beautiful – but buggy – night out and it was great to unwind and watch a cute little robot follow his heart. We were so happy to see how many people showed up! Some other favorite events and moments were when we gave some folks at the library a tour, hosted a s’mores-making event, and recently led an activity-filled walk with Camp North Woods (a day camp for 4th-5th graders).
From the events, to the tours, and all the other work in between, it’s been a lovely summer and we have been very happy to share it with you. Cheers to another great summer, happy exploring!
