ACTIVITIES WE ENJOYED THIS WEEK

ICEBREAKERS – Ashley came up with the questions for our icebreaker for both LWF and AC with the theme of “All Things Spring.”  We learned many interesting things about one another this week.   

LEARNING AND DISCUSSION ~ This week we had a special visitor on Monday from New Mexico!  Valerie, our Director of Quality, introduced us to her pot-bellied pig, Bella.  We learned all about caring for pigs.  This week, we also had fun sharing April Fools Jokes, National Vacation Day, National One Cent Day, and National Sourdough Bread Day.  Danneika shared some funnies about pennies and making sourdough break.  She also shared this recipe for healthy brownies https://www.food.com/recipe/jessica-seinfeld-healthy-brownies-259359.  
We talked about teamwork and watched Japanese synchronized video. https://youtu.be/JmZt5I6T_U8
