Sweet Sabbath

In an effort to better keep the Sabbath day holy as a family we worked on this Sweet Sabbath poster. Each candy included a Sabbah-appropriate activity, including "listen to good music," "read to your brother," "play a family game," "visit someone," "write a thank you card," "say prayers," "think about Jesus during the sacrament," and many others. As the kids completed each task (and on Sunday's only), they colored in the candy picture. Once all the candies were colored in they earned a movie party with friends. The Sabbath is a special day!

Mother's Tea

For several weeks Cali and the other OSE first graders prepared for a Mother's day program and breakfast. She also created some very cute artwork and cards for me. 

Gardeners

What great weed-pulling helpers!!
