Thanks for an Amazing Spring Break

Click here for more information
What an incredible spring break we had!  We read some classic books, designed and dyed eggs, made magical creatures from Sculpey, fashioned handmade notebooks for recording our observations...and much, much more.

We want to thank everyone who joined us for these adventures! You showed us that the classics bear rereading, that fairies visit those who believe in them, that the reward for quiet observation is sometimes a blue heron, and that the world would be a better place if we all had a Hogwarts stamp in our passports.

We hope you join us for more adventures this summer!

Yarn Stories in Vancouver Sun!

Ever wonder where the Lyceum's fabulous knitted bicycle came from -- the one that hangs from the rafters over our garden?  Or the little knitted booties on our garden tables and chairs? 

Well, they were made by our friend, the fabric artist and Coquitlam mother of two, Olga O'Shea. A December article in the Vancouver Sun discusses how Olga and other Vancouver area knitters have risen to a "social media challenge to make hats for kids in chilly Camp Jordan."
