Education on Bainbridge Island
My daughter Zoe made a twisted wire lion in one of the Seattle Art Museum’s project classes.

Of course I write a lot about Bainbridge here on my Bainbridge Blog . . . however, I don’t want you to forget about one of the primary reasons Bainbridge is so outstanding – Seattle.   One my favorite things to do is walk on the ferry and walk off onto the streets of Seattle.  Seattle, the big city that it is, has so much to offer and it is really just steps away (via an easy stress-free ferry ride).

Being one of Seattle’s suburbs, one cool feature is that kids from Bainbridge Island schools often take walking field trips to Seattle attractions, like the Seattle Children’s Theatre, the museums, the Seattle Public Library, the Seattle Aquarium, etc.  Last week, my daughter’s class and all of the first graders from Blakely Elementary went to the Seattle Art Museum to see the Calder Exhibit.  We walked off the ferry to the museum, participated in an art class, saw the exhibit, and were back to school by noon.  Easy field trips to Seattle, another excellent island perk.

The school years zip by even quicker than when I was a kid . . . and here we are in July. Summer is already well underway and I don’t think I even have the lunchboxes packed away. The end of the school year is so busy . . . my excuse for not blogging. But, here are some end of the year memories, Bainbridge style: some photos of the end of the Softball season, the Blakely school concert, Blakely Field Day, Parent’s Night in Kindergarten, and some beach time from a field trip and the last day of school. Now that I’ve had a chance to catch my breath, tomorrow we are off to the Grand Ole’ 4th (which is so big it has to start on the 3rd) in downtown Winslow. Hope to see you there.
