Greetings again. My Easter break was nice, as I had hoped, and the Pogues concert I mentioned earlier was incredible.
An academic development day (or whatever they’re called) brought many Foxboro students to the museum today. Stonehill has those random days off as well, and they’re always welcomed. It was nice to have an older crowd, since I mostly deal with children under five. I recently was given a giant box of goodies (stickers, pencils, posters, etc.) and was happy to hand them out to the children like a madman. Some children learned that wearing a Ray Allen jersey awards them extra prizes.
Spring arriving leads to the possibility of outdoor FETCH!™ labs (such as kite making), but with the off-and-on cold and rain I’m not getting too excited.
Our website has been updated by my talented and wonderful fellow intern Chris Vacchi (See picture below. And no, I didn’t tell Chris I was doing this). It’s much more colorful, and I believe Chris did an exemplary job.

New England Mamas had a recent post mentioning discount museum prices in Massachusetts. Of course, I have to shamelessly plus that with a mere six dollars (free to members and children under one) a child can experience three floors of fun in the Children’s Museum in Easton. Plus I hear a wonderful intern teaches FETCH! labs on the bottom floor of the museum a couple days a week.
Hope you have a great week, and I’ll be posting soon enough.

    Don’t give all the credit to me, you have to thank Pam and Steve H. also. It was his idea and Pam made the colorful buttons. I just posted them (with help from Paula). But I will admit that the site is now stunning and brilliant.

    Just FYI – you have a deadlink in this entry! The “recent post” link to New England Mamas intrigued me enough to click on it.

    Boo hoo……maybe you can fix it so I can investigate???

    Well, well. 3 comments? Awesome. Thank you, Michelle, I will fix that post haste. 411mommy, for the museum in general they’re at the higher age level, but for the FETCH labs I teach they’re a perfect age. On school vacation week they’d be perfect as well since we have many activities for older children.

    What are the up comming events for the Fetch! Lab. I was told on the Children’s Museum in Easton’s website gave me a link to your blog and it said “Check out our intern Tim’s blog to see what’s going on and what’s coming up!” So can you put the events in your Blog? PLEASE DO!

    Well, anonymous,I feel like I have been keeping people up to date on what is going on not just with the FETCH! Lab, as the blog is not purely about FETCH! As far as what’s coming up, I am no longer teaching the labs, as a different intern will replace me over the summer. We still will have the labs and the blog though, so I will let the new author know to mention that. This week we made kites!
