On Canaan's actual birthday we took teepee pudding cups (he decorated and helped with all the steps to these) to his class and celebrated with them. His friend Elina gave him a little craft she had made and he was thrilled. The class got to eat lunch in the classroom with us and they were super excited to show us how they've learned the shuffle and the cha cha cha. Second graders dancing is pretty cute!

He also got to celebrate with Living & Learning students, with the birthday song at the start of chapel and a candle in a brownie cheesecake. He felt pretty special to have 40 sets of eyes on him and he beamed up front. Extra bonus was letting him stay up for worship time that night, which he loves but runs way past bedtime.
