three kings day

today is epiphany.  the decorations came down and the camels and wise men payed us a visit.  last night grass and sticks were gathered to feed the camels.  and fittingly, crowns were worn in honor of the kings.  i taught elisha “the little drummer boy” and we read ezra jack keats’s illustrated version of the song.  it has beautiful pictures, especially of the kings.

what did they bring the boys?  a book each and a couple of cookies – life’s essentials.

    sheila – would you believe that someone did a review on amazon and said this book was not worth it and had “weird illustrations”!!! shocking.
