God provided a BEAUTIFUL day Thursday, for our trip to Botanica! Thanks to our parents for coming along!!
Since we have been learning about plants and growing them, we listened to a “How Does Your Garden Grow?” program!
We helped explain what a sunflower needs to grow!
We got to explore,
water vegetable and flower beds,
we pumped our own water,
had fun ALL OVER Botanica!
Thank you, God, for ALL of Your beautiful creation!

We read and acted out the Easter story!
It began on Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey!
People waved palm branches and hailed Him as KING!
We made Resurrection cookies. The recipe reminds us of Jesus’ death and Resurrection!
We beat the pecans just like Jesus was beaten by Herod’s soldiers.
While on the cross, Jesus was given vinegar when He was thirsty, It smells AWFUL!
We tasted salt, as it represents the tears of His followers as He died!
The Gospel (the Good News) is sweet like sugar! Jesus died for us so we may life eternally!
The Resurrection cookies were bright white like the angels at the tomb, and EMPTY, like the tomb!
We celebrated with our “He Is Risen” party!
We played “(Pin)Tape the Tail on Peter Cottontail”, frosted and enjoyed Easter cookies,
made fun Easter crafts,
raced with eggs in spoons,
and hunted for Easter eggs in our Library!
What JOY we have in our RISEN LORD! Happy Easter!
