Peeps Diorama

BAB (Bromfield Acton Boxborough) PEEPS-TACULAR Contest

Emily attended the Rowing Team this spring. The first activity of the rowing team is Peeps Diorama. Actually, I googled “Peeps” and understand it is one kind of marshmallow, which is very popular in the US. You even can find it on Wikipedia, which says:

Peeps are marshmallows sold in the United States and Canada that are shaped into chicks, bunnies, and other animals. There are also different shapes used for various holidays.

Finally, I understood it is using Peeps to create a theme in terms of Rowing or Book titles. Therefore, Emily created a “Row in Amazon” and Alice had a “Harry Potter” using Peeps.

We might be the first one to submit the Peeps diorama. Though this is a small community competition, we did enjoy all the delicate works and were surprised by the enthusiastic participation and creativity.

Go for Rowing

Regatta of Havard Henley, Bare Hill Pond, Arp 24, 2022

Emily and Alice have tried various exercises since we moved to the US. In addition to tennis, squash, basketball, and volleyball, Emily joined the rowing team.

After 4-week indoor training, Emily started the outdoor practice in early April. At the end of April, the Regatta is very exciting for all the new rowers. I learned that: every child who starts rowing would likely be a newcomer because most of the participants attend rowing from middle school, high school, and even college. It is unlikely with tennis, and many kids start when they are young.

Five team members in a boat include one cox and four rowers. Cox leads the boat orientation, and all the team members need to work efficiently and closely. Actually, they are in the same boat! So hopefully, Emily can enjoy the teamwork and encouragement in rowing.
