Owls, Sept 19

The Owls are accomplishing amazing things! There are three main building groups; the treehouse, the knife throwing area, and the park. The treehouse has added a large plywood sheet that everyone helped carry up; the knife throwing area completed a risk assessment for their activity, implementing rules and structure to keep it as safe as possible; the park has a new addition of a fire hose climbing circuit! Throughout all of these activities, we are still learning each other's names, celebrating our strengths and differences and getting to know each other's passions. Bea loves giraffes (speed drawing anyone?), Safiya is an awesome flag defender, Isla can add a burst of speed to capture a defender, and Etienne has creative ideas for all our games. We love each and every one!
