Happy 2015! It was wonderful to start the year off hearing about people’s Christmas adventures and plans for 2015. It really sounds like this year is the year for ambitious travel. Today we “finished off” our Christmas story by reading a “Small Camel Follows the Star” by Rachel R.N. Brown about Small Camel who undertook his own ambitious travel to carry three special gifts all the way across the desert. We also made starry pictures of gifts to take home. What a sparkly way to start the year!
O, Star of Wonder, Star of Night,
Star with royal beauty bright!
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect Light.
The Quest of the Magi by John Henry Hopkins, Jr.
