THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER

What a fun and busy month we had, we kept the kids engaged in many activities that exposed them to the colors orange and black, the oval shape and exposure to different kinds of vegetables. The K9 visit was super entertaining and loving. We could not go to the farm, but the farm came to us. Preparations to stone soup began with the Bible story “Jesus Feeds 5,000,” and “Stone Soup; by Tony Ross. The kids enjoyed every minute.

Happy Thanksgiving. Let’s all be thankful to God for the good, the kindness and all the lessons we learn from life.
