Today, we celebrated Lochie's birthday with a special book that made everyone laugh. His mom, Katherine, was a fantastic reader, and the children fed off of her joyful, fun energy as she read I am a Frog by Mo Willems.
Once we finished reading the book, some of Lochie's birthday committee (Giacomo, Cedar, Jane, Sylvie, and Audrey) was there to present his gift. Lochie recalled sharing with them that his favorite animal is a giraffe. With that idea in mind, his committee worked on a collage of materials that were inspired by the skin, hair, and overall appearance of a giraffe. After we discussed the collage, Lochie walked around the candle three times to represent his three years, and then he excitedly blew it out, and everyone joined in to sing Happy Birthday.
