Well it happened, or I should say its happening. After a five year vision, two years of hard work, we hit the ground drawing today. Lum Elementary School showed up in force, it seemed like all kids showed up at once! We circled up, said words of gratitude, and started to color in our salamander’s right foot.

The kids were great, lots of parent support with AC Transit helping with busing.

One day down and ten more to go. Almost hard to believe it all, a big dream.

Something special happened after all the kids left, part of a huge rainbow appeared high in the sky, and then another one – this one a full circle around the sun. I thought it must be magic and that is was the colored chalk from the kids and the wind.
