We accomplished an incredibly ambitious agenda today for our fourth Friday and Campfire Day!
From singin' our favorites and a new one (to some) called the Sun Song, we moved quick to retrieve Peeps and get started with announcements. There was so much to do!
After singing we convened in small groups to discuss personal finances and progress towards completing their tiny homesteads. We're checking in often to make sure Homesteaders have in mind that home appraisals and loan repayment deadlines are coming up soon! The fifth week is almost here!
A real accomplishment is that everyone has finished their houses, and all but a few have moved from the workshop (where they are their final touches) to the land!
After checking progress we gathered for an "open format" Town Meeting.
A little background: There have been a lot of contentious changes in the Peeps political scene of late! Two competing political factions have arisen. One of the two groups is the town council--the f…
Our first Friday at Village and the last day of June was very full, and as such so will be its blog!
Activity block one included working on houses, businesses, and the fire pit for our first campfire! Campfire is a Village tradition that happens at the end of every week. We enjoy a fire and possible s'mores, with a variety show as the main entertainment. Also in block one, applicants for the Newspaper manager position were interviewed by commissioner Evie. "What's his name"/Frederick/Joel/etc. was chosen for the role! As Newspaper Manager, he plans to allow businesses to advertise for free in hopes that it will put all poster controversy behind us. He will also hire differently opinionated writers to update the town on the political scene from a variety of perspectives.
Another new homesteader also joined us today, and we were happy to help her catch up with the rest of the group!
After snack at we broke for swimming, continued workshop-ing, and working on campfire ro…
Today at Village Homesteaders learned new skills at community college classes, held Peep interviews on the radio, worked their Peep businesses, cut paths through the woods and played many rounds of Camouflage!
We began by singing almost all of our favorites: My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean, many doses of Jibberish, the Jeep song, The Done Song, Llama, Eddie Cootcha-Ketcha Kama and had some lovely guitar accompaniment from Josh as we put our energy into the Cheese song.
From singing we retrieved our Peeps from the land. Luckily, no one was slugged or had their head eaten. We decided that this is probably due to the increasing number of houses appearing on Peeps' land!
During Werk Bezerk I (our first activity period), many Homesteaders attended a community college class on Peep-sized paintings led by Evie and her Peep Petal. Homesteaders left with paintings to hang on the walls of their completed (or nearly-completed homes). Vivian spruced up two rooms of her…
