Weeks of December 10 and 17
Our Lady of Lourdes has amazing kids, but they have an even more amazing 5th grade! I am out for lunch duty on Friday afternoons, and one day about a month ago, when circling the tables, there were a group of 5th grade girls feverishly chattering and working on menus. When I asked what they were up to, they said with such excitement that they were going to have a lemonade stand with snacks! But, it was that simple, and that sweet. I didn't think much of it, other than this was true childhood at its best. I watched with joy as they talked about cookies and lemonade recipes. That was really the last I saw or heard of it, until Friday afternoon when flyers appeared to be passed out. They took the initiative and saw it through. Never in my wildest imagination, did I foresee what they built and created! I am so proud of our 5th graders and all who participated in and/or supported their bakery and fundraising efforts! They proudly handed over a check to Kids' Club (their primary beneficiary) for $360! They truly are examples of what this Advent season is all about!
I hope your Advent gifts are slowly filling up with straw to prepare a place for the birth of baby Jesus!
