Fruit Smoothies, Kale Chips and a big microphone....

What a day! I know leap days only come once every four years, but this was the kind of day I wouldn't mind having more often. Mrs. Craffey's class and Kathy Gunst did a superb job making fruit smoothies and kale chips while being recorded by WBUR's audio producer for "Here and Now". Our faces showed our surprise when he told us he had just come from Boston where he interviewed Lady Gaga. From Lady Gaga to Central School, in one day. What a job! We'll post the link to our "Here and Now" episode as soon as we get it. If you are thinking, "I sure am proud to have my children go to Central School", you should be! Kathy couldn't stop complimenting the third grade students  today. "They are so polite and smart!"

We are pretty proud of Kathy Gunst too. She's been so busy with her interviews, cooking classes, book signings and more. We were finally able to present her with her Christmas gift today, three quilted postcards of the school, hoop house and of Kathy's hands helping a student plant a seedling. Kathy is looking forward to hanging it in her office for inspiration. Love it!

Note: the quilted postcards were made by Linda Johnson of Sew Upscale. You can visit her store here:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to create these. The three pieces framed together look fabulous. Linda
