Fall Festival 2012

Fall festival was a big success at school today. It is a day for kids to dress up in their Christian character outfits (Elleazah is the bee from Noah’s ark), host booths for carnival type games, and serve food- with the goal of raising money for their class, and training the students to work together in planning and executing community activities. Considering we are working with the seniors, our class is very focused on raising money for their class trip, which takes place at the end of May.  Elleazah had a great time at the fall festival. Though it is the rainy season right now, we had sunny skies. Elleazah was still a bit young for the games, but she did enjoy getting her face painted by the 9th grade class. She also had her first taste of cotton candy. At first, she didn’t know what to make of the fact that the cotton just seems to melt in the mouth, but once she realized it was sweet, she was always ready of another taste! Needless to say, cotton candy will be considered a special treat , only eaten once in a long while.
