Mother's Day Tea (another late one)

Karis' pre-school (4 year olds) had a Mother's Day Tea to honor mothers right before the big day. It was such a sweet occasion.

At the table, Karis' teachers had helped her write a lot of things about me. One that comes to mind is, "My mom is smart because she knows how to spell." She had done a hand and foot painting that was really beautiful, and she had designed a Mother's Day card for me.

The program started with prayer, and then the teachers had all the 4-year olds get their mother something to drink and then go back and get themselves something. I told Karis she could choose what I drank.

Here she comes with my pink lemonade.

After a small delicious snack/meal (which the 4-year olds had assisted with), each child got in front of their mother to sing a song to her. I videoed her with tears in my eyes. It was so precious, but I'm glad I have it on tape forever.

After all was said and done, I took pictures of her with her friends and her two wonderful, awesome, have-it-always-together teachers: Mrs. Michele (L) and Mrs. Jamie (R).

What a beautiful memory-making day! Thank you Bear Creek Baptist Pre-school!

You thought you could escape, but I found you. ;) IMB, huh? So glad to see what God's doing with you guys. Darin and I now have a 9 year old foster-to-adopt son. We hope he'll be "ours" by this time next year. Please give my love to Doug, too; I'll be keeping up with your journey. Can't wait to see what's next for you!
