Preschool had an idea a few weeks ago to paint a tree on our street side window.  Our vision was to enable the children to follow the seasons throughout the year, making and creating foliage and animals, all centred around the tree.  
Following the original idea, artist in residence and art teacher Jeff kindly volunteered to help us and started to work his wonders on the window, and then following the incredibly sad news about Mike; Rosie and I asked him to include Mike’s name somewhere in our tree, we decided that amongst the roots would be most appropriate.
Here are some photos that we wanted to share with you. It’s even better in real life, and at night the light shines beautifully on it.  If you get a chance, maybe walk that way past the school.
