Happy Birthday Jesus!

Our traditional Happy Birthday Jesus celebration looked a little different this year but in no way did we let that shift our focus from the reason for the season.

In Room 2, we dressed up in our Christmas festive best, sang happy birthday, baked cupcakes and enjoyed a special pizza lunch.

As we head into this season of giving, we remember that God has given us the most special gift, his son Jesus, to be the light of the world. Here’s a glimpse into our fun and festive day celebrating our savior, our king–our friend Jesus!

“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Stone Soup Days in Room 2

Our Stone Soup Days were a wonderful way to celebrate the Thanksgiving season. We began our week by reading different versions of Stone Soup and discussing the concept of collaboration and sharing. On Thursday and Friday the children cut different vegetables to add to a big pot of broth, we added some seasoning and pasta to finish our masterpiece. Next, came our celebration feast with our delicious soup, rolls, apple cider, strawberries and our festive decor. Our room 2 family sat together in delight enjoying our soup and each other’s company. To top off the festivities we had a special guest reader today, who we lovingly refer to as papa. He read Bug Soup to the children over a zoom link so the children were able to interact with him. This last week has reminded us of the special blessings God has granted us and we are thankful for our room 2 family.
