A warm and wonderful birthday celebration! We saw video footage of Giacomo the his mother Carola put together. We shared in the company of his mom and dad, his sister Rose or "Lala" (also a St. John's alum), and his grandmother who is visiting from Italy. The children presented Giacomo with his animal inspired birthday gift: a zebra mobile. We sang happy birthday two times, first in Italian and then in English. In between singing, Giacomo walked around the candle with Rose and blew out his candle. Lastly, we enjoyed "apfeltaschen" a German apple pastry, homemade by Carola's mom. An absolutely delightful morning!
Thank you to Giacomo and his family for the celebration memories!
