I wish you a restful weekend!

Then we had cooking with Kristin and Niall. They planned a special end of year cooking project that involved decorating pretzels with lots of yummy treats. As you can imagine the children LOVED this cooking project.

I also read the children the book titled “The Legend of the Teddy Bear.” Please ask your child how President Roosevelt helped to make Teddy Bears such legends in the US.
