International Children’s Day

Every Fall,the week before Halloween, Montessori House (the girls’ Elementary Shool) has a program and potluck lunch to celebrate International Children’s Day.

The preschool-1st grade kids dress up in costumes of children around the world.  The elementary class usually wear their School t-shirts with jeans although this year they wore white graduation gowns.

They then parade around the parents while “it’s a Small World” is played. here’s some of the cute little kids in costumes…

 after the parade, they all stand together and sing a few songs. (one of which is always “love grows round in a circle and comes back knocking on your front door.”

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
