So, Happy 4th of July from Botswana! Sending love your way!
Happy 4th of July!
Since OIS is an international school, we try to celebrate major holidays from the different countries represented. Today we had a small 4th of July program at our chapel time and then in my classroom I taught them a little more about the history of America's independence. The kids had fun learning and even listening to some patriotic songs like "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "America the Beautiful," and "The Star Spangled Banner." During free time, several of the students drew pictures of some of the American symbols or created a flag. The most precious part of the day was during our daily prayer time when one of my students suggested we pray for all the Americans celebrating today that they would have fun and be safe.
