Sanaa and Layla were very excited when they found out it was Mother's Day. Both girls jumped down from the table and rushed to get their presents they had made at school. I was happy that I got a nice picture with all three kids. When a camera gets pulled out, Malakai rushes to get in front and says "eese."
Sanaa made two things. The first was a picture of her and I. I love my crazy brown hair! She also filled in some sentences about me. If you can't read the picture below it says (the words she filled in are underlined):
My mom likes to eat soup but don't give her spiders. My mom is really good at hugging. In the summer my likes to be warm. In the winter my mom likes to drink hot cocoa.
She was pretty accurate! I'm not sure about the soup thing since I don't make soup often, but I do like it.
She also made a necklace. Her teacher brought in color clay that the kids shaped into beads and then poked a hole in. They then strung the beads on some string. Sanaa added her initials to the necklace as well. I did wear it to church (and I was even up front playing the flute). The necklace she made matched the outfit I was wearing pretty well and she really liked seeing me wear it.
Layla gave me a poem with her handprints. I got this same poem from Sanaa when she was in preschool. Layla did inform me that the girls used pink paint for their handprints and the boys used blue paint.
