Daniel's birthday celebration
Lily has been asking about it every day since she finished up Daniel's birthday present as part of the birthday committee:
"Do we celebrate Daniel's birthday today?"
And yesterday the answer we could give her was finally YES!
During Morning Meeting Daniel shared photos of his 1st, 2nd and 3rd birthday celebrations with the class.
Daniel's mom and dad joined us for the birthday snack and celebration. We enjoyed cantaloupe and mini cupcakes together before starting our Brown Room traditions. We sang our birthday song for each year since Daniel's birth and he got to walk around the birthday table three times before blowing out his candle.
Earlier that morning Daniel smelled our birthday candle and noticed "It smells like banana soup! I looove banana soup." (the label on the candle says "Sun Shower" but we guess that smell is up for interpretation). Hugh overheard his comment and said "I know why he likes bananas, because we were monkeys." to which Jade added "I was a tiger."
We had a wonderful celebration and
the birthday committee was happy to see
Daniel being so amazed by their present.
