Each room has animals, and here the kids are looking at the parakeets. Matthew loved seeing them, but was a bit frightened when they chirped loudly at each other or started to fly around.

Ella plans her own outfits every day. They are always layered and she is quite pleased with her creations. For this, she wanted to be a festive red.
Mira's class. She is sitting directly under the 's' in 'Christmas.'
There was lots of very enthusiastic singing. In fact, it seemed to be more of a shouting contest than singing for family. But there were lots of giggles and smiles. Mira knew the songs so well and when she'd look over at me, I'd smile and give her a wink. She'd give a wide smile and attempt to wink back.
