While we have taken today off from the majority of school-related things, I did want to talk to the kids (mostly Caleb) about Martin Luther King, Jr. and why we use this day to honor him.
I showed him some pictures (yay for the Internet!) of MLK and told him about how he taught people about treating one another fairly.
The kids colored a color-by-number version of King and we talked about peace, and what it means to live at peace with others. We learned Hebrews 12:14 - Strive for peace with everyone. We also painted a dove...I know doves are typically white, but we made a colorful version, using Q-tips and paint.
