I’m sorry I have not posted for so long! Those quiet summer days have been replaced by laughing, singing, dancing children...so much more fun then the boredom of August! As we come to the end of four weeks in session, I’m sure you have all seen how crazy busy it has been at Children’s House.

We have had a few new and exciting things happening around here; in honor of International Peace Day on September 21, Korey came up with the idea of “buddies” and assigned all the elementary children a younger child or two, to be special friends.


First, we had a little peace ceremony on the playground. We lit a candle and all the children (sans toddler) sang “Light a Candle for Peace”. After singing, Korey read out all the names for each pair/trio of buddies and the children found each other and spent a little time getting to know one another. At the risk of sounding corny, it really was kind of magical.


If you have not had a chance to see the buddy photos, drawings and acrostic poems on the bulletin board, please take a moment to check them out. We think they’re pretty special. ~Dana
