It’s vacation week for the New Haven Public Schools, so there’s an extra burst of children’s activities, especially at the New Haven Free Public Library and Yale’s Peabody Museum. There’s a burst of activity at Yale, too, because school in still in session and lots of music and dance and theater students are doing their recitals or other thesis performance projects. Plus it’s still National Poetry Month. A major flurry of words and music this week.

Jaclyn Freshman chose the original “tart and sweet” yogurt with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pineapple, and dark chocolate crisps.
Sarah Bull chose the “pomegranate original swirl” with similar fruit and added the “mochi” or rice tapioca bits, along chocolate chips.
Christine Wu had the pomegranate yogurt with lots of strawberries with some teddy grahams stuck against the swirl like yummy rocks in the dairy mountain.
