Smashing success!

Thank you so much to all the families who shared their kiddos with us this week. We had a great first session and were thrilled at the turnout of kids (40+ kids came ready to play and engage!).

We were incredibly blessed to see the generosity of our kids in their donations from their egg hunt to the kids at The Shalimar Learning Center. Our instructions were simply that kids share "whatever they felt that they wanted to share".

Some kids shared 2 of their eggs, and some kids donated their entire bag of eggs. It was pretty sweet to witness.

We'd love it if you would notice if your kids demonstrate being attentive [listening with their eyes, ears and heart] this week and affirm them for it!

We will be offering an incentive for those kids who know the verse that went home this week, so encourage them to practice it.

And, please do have your kids choose a gently used book to donate to The Shalimar Learning Center this week. We will be working with the kids to write a note to the child who will receive their book.

(Did you know that The Shalimar Learning Center is 10 miles from the port streets? 10 miles away there are children who live in very crowded and poor living conditions; who lack school supplies and places to study; and who are provided a safe and encouraging environment at The Shalimar Learning Center)

Feel free to email us at any time with any questions you may have

Many of you asked how you can help out with this program. We will always receive parents who want to hang with us and help with "crowd control" with open arms, so please know that you are welcome at any time to stay and hang.

We also are going to be serving snack each week and would gladly receive Snack Volunteers or small donations to help cover snack and/or activity fees. We do not want anyone to feel obligated to contribute in anyway! If you'd like to bring the snack for one of the weeks, please shoot us an email and we will coordinate.

We will have a box at the registration table if you'd like to donate a few dollars to help with snack or activity fees. (Thank you for the help!)

Happy Easter!
