Happy Grandparent’s Day!

Happy Grandparent’s Day to all of our special HBMH grandparents!¬†Although Sunday is the real holiday, we had the opportunity to celebrate and honor our wonderful grandparents today. We’ve been preparing for the event all week, baking muffins and cutting fruit to be served, and making special gifts for our grandparents.

Special “thanks” to our grandparents who traveled from out of city/state. We’re glad that you could join us for this special event!

4th of July Fun

Better late than never…I have to share a few photos taken last week during our Independence Day Celebration in our Primary Community. As part of our Summer Camp Theme “Natural Art”, our friends used recycled items to create holiday decorations. What a fun way to celebrate our country’s independence!
