How many of you got up before dawn on May 19th to watch the wedding of Meghan Markel and Prince Harry? Did you get excited when you first saw her gown? Were you energized by the message of the sermon? Did you wonder at the variety of the music and the cuteness of the attendants? I sure did and it got me musing.

Earth-Covered School

Imagine transporting a student from the 1890’s schoolhouse at Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek to a heavily populated area in Osceola County, Florida in 1980; where wild turkeys and bobcats once roamed.    What they would see would be startling.  An earth-covered school, the design borrowed from Southwest American Indian tribes; was being built to save energy.  Referred to as “The dirt school, Groundhog or Eskimo Elementary”, the name chosen was ”Reedy Creek Elementary”.
