Happy Birthday Sam! Your friends worked so hard to create you the most spectacular birthday magnet! To quote Lou Lou, “A dinosaur? Aren’t you smart! Everyone knows Sam loves dinosaurs!” Thank ou so much for celebrating your special day with your family and us. We love you so!
After Kurt’s visit yesterday, we gathered our supplies to make lunch for the people downstairs in the church’s shelter program. After decorating lunchbags, the children assembled turkey and cheese sandwiches and included chips, trail mix, water, and some fruit. The children were all excited to provide art and food to the visitors downstairs.
Today we also celebrate Chinese New Year with Kian’s mom. We read Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas by Natasha Yim and Grace Zong. Then we learned what all of our Chinese zodiac symbols are. Austin, Louise, Joslin, Elle, Leigh, Grace, Jack and Sam are the Year of the Wooden Horse. Charlie, Lou Lou, Rowan, Sally and Margaret are Year of the Wooden Sheep. Diana also brought all the children a piece of candy and a red envelope, a traditional New Year gift. Then she showed us how to write her name in Chinese, and gave us special paper so we can practice writing Chinese characters.
