Friday FUN photos from school: Your response was overwhelming!

EDITOR’S NOTE: I asked the moms, dads, teachers and others who get our e-newsletter to help me build our “Friday FUN Photos from School” feature in this blog. What a fun (and overwhelming!) response we got! Here are some examples. Look for more in coming weeks and keep sending your pictures! We love to share examples of creative, positive, joyful and whimsical moments in the school day, all of which offer their own unique lessons to the Arizona kids we’re so busy raising. — Karen Barr

Cate Johnson, a contributor with Scottsdale Moms Blog, homeschools her three older children (ages 8, 7 and 6). "In our 'school' we have the freedom to explore and learn outside a traditional setting," she wrote. "Here, my oldest is learning science and farming lessons by feeding a baby kid at the Simple Farm."
