A Celebration of Friendship! Happy Valentine's Day!

What a wonderful celebration we had today! The children each shared what a friend does. Very special... Some responses were; friends make me smile, they help me, they listen to me when I need support, play together, have play dates, kind to each other and many more! Afterwards we opened our special boxes and cards. The snacks were yummy too! What fun to hear everyone saying thank you and I like..... Many thanks to all of you who made contributions of time, energy and other donations.
