Thursday 14th May

Good Morning Year 2

Today is Thursday 14th May, 2020.  Today's message is a little bit later than usual.  This morning I checked on the robin and her nest was gone.  Sadly, I think a fox or cat got her nest.  Hopefully, next year, she will build a nest much higher up.


Today I received a super picture from Annie showing her leaf collection!  I hope you are able to get out and start spotting some leaves!  


Joke of the Day!

What do you call a deer with no eyes?

No eye-deer.

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me.

You are with me night and day.

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.
