Little Red Caboose

How fun it was to gather in front of the Little Red Store to celebrate the return of the Tosa Farmers Market with all of you!

We read Market Days by local author Lois Ehlert. We sang "Going to the Market," our own version of Raffi's "Going on a Picnic". We enjoyed an energetic round of "Hokey Pokey," and practiced our counting with the "Here is a Beehive" finger play in honor of the honey vendor. There was a honey vendor, right?

And then, how exciting and dramatic when a train came through right in the middle of our HAPPY HOUR! Nancy was ready with Little Red Caboose! We formed a train of our own and chugged in circle as we sang this infectious song together.

What I liked the most was the opportunity to see many moms and dads together! I love Saturday gatherings, and I can't wait for next year's weekly market at this location, my new favorite spot in our village!
