We talked a little bit about St. Francis and how he was kind to animals. I sang the Prayer of St. Francis song. MLH has been learning about him in Pre-K too. They made little crowns with different animals pasted to it. They also made a list of all their pets for St. Francis to take care of and made a big sign. I was trying to find my cat, Mortimer's, name listed. The closest I could find was "Kitty Member." For a child that is usually so articulate, he always mumbles Mortimer's name. So clearly "Member" was as close as his teacher could get!
This is a special Name Day in our house. Afterward we read about St. Francis and the wolf, which is a favorite.
