For story hour May 4th we celebrated Mother’s Day with two books about mom. Just Me and My Mom and Just for (Yu) You both by Mercer Mayer, a couple favorites of our moms and kids alike!! After reading to the kids, I had the moms leave the room and my volunteer Justine Hulm came and helped me get the kids Mother’s Day gifts together. We made a bookmark with a poem and a finger print flower. The poem said,
” I made you a flower with my finger and thumb so you will have these memories for all the years to come!” Then we made a keepsake with four of the childs hand prints on it that said, ” Mommy you always clean the fingerprints I leave upon the wall. I seem to make a mess of things because I am very small. The years will pass so quickly I’ll soon be grown like you and all the little fingerprints will surely fade from view. So here are special “Prints”…a memory that’s true. So you’ll recall the very day I made this just for you!” Being a mom myself and writing this message here makes me think of my older kids and my younger kids and how quickly the time does fly, so I hope all of our Hebron friends had a very happy mother’s day and thought of all the great memories or kids, (furry kids included), have made for us.
Pictured from left to right we have Caleb Kaminsky, Noelle Kaminsky, Sarah Dominguez, Ricky Dominguez and Morghan Coots holding their bookmark and keepsake, and wishing their mommies a Very Happy Mother’s Day!
