Festival of Michaelmas- day 1

Associated with courage and portrayed as a warrior angel, the Tale of Archangel Michael is on September 29th and our focus this week. We will be focusing on the traits of strength and courage as well as Dragons, the color yellow and the star shape- all related to the tales we read this morning. Michaelmas Story of the Star Children and Michael and the Dragon!

After some book work we headed out to the beach to relax and soak in some of that summer sun while we still can!
