Oh, God, make me a better parent.
Help me to understand my children, to listen patiently to what they have to say and to answer all their questions kindly. Keep me from interrupting them, talking back to them and contradicting them. Make me as courteous to them as I would have them be to me. Give me the courage to confess my sins against my children and ask of them forgiveness, when I know that I have done them wrong.
May I not vainly hurt the feelings of my children. Forbid that I should laugh at their mistakes or resort to shame and ridicule as punishment. Let me not tempt a child to lie and steal. So guide me hour by hour that I may demonstrate by all I say and do that honesty produces happiness.
Reduce, I pray, the meanness in me. May I cease to nag; and when I am out of sorts, help me, O Lord, to hold my tongue.
Blind me to the little errors of my children and help me to see the good things that they do. Give me a ready work for honest praise.
Help me to treat my children as those of their own age, but let me not exact of them the judgments and conventions of adults. Allow me not to rod them of the opportunity to wait upon themselves, to think, to choose, and to make decisions.
Forbid that I should ever punish them for my selfish satisfaction. May I grant them all of their wishes that are reasonable and have the courage always to withhold a privilege which I know will do them harm.
Make me so fair and just, so considerate and companionable to my children that they will have a genuine esteem for me. Fit me to be loved and imitated by my children.
With all thy gifts, O God, do give me calm and poise and self-control.
Infant (Jungle) Room
Summer is coming to an end and the infant room is gearing up for some new changes. Mrs. Liz and Miss Kristin are sad to be leaving in a couple weeks but know that Mrs. Erin and Mrs. Angela will take such good care of our babies.
We say farewell to Harper and Andrew making room for Gavin and Derek to take over the room! They are everywhere! Pulling up on everything!
Lyla is feeling much better and crawling around now! We welcomed back Molly with smiliey faces! Ally and her old buddy are working hard on building their muscles to start crawling soon. Henry and Christian are working on tummy time and enjoy lots of snuggles.
This past month we have all stayed cool inside but have managed to get out in the morning for buggy rides. Sometimes the older camp kids would help push us around.
We are very excited for the Fall to start very soon. The greatest part of our job is being able to watch these kiddos grow. Thanks for allowing us to be a special part of their lives.
Until next month…

SUMMER NEWS FROM: FISH, BUTTERFLY AND WATERMELON ROOMS JUNE 2015
Wow, this summer flew by! Our staff has enjoyed your child’s love for learning and eagerness to try new things. We started the month of July celebrating the 4th with Fork Fireworks in art with Ms. Jenny and face painting and tattoos in the quiet area with Ms. Liz, followed by our field trip to the Butterfly House!! Our next week was quite magical with our trip to the Magic House, magic scented paint and wizard hats. Last but not least Mrs. Lawrence welcomed her 4th baby boy to the world. Declan Christopher Lawrence was born on 7/7/15 weighing in at 7lbs 7oz! We also had a field trip to Jolly Jumps and had the time of our lives! We were very adventurous with camping and outdoors week, we made binoculars and lighting bugs in art, playing with mud and sticks in sensory, and went camping in tents for quiet. The last week in July is one we won’t forget with our summer program! All of our children did amazing. It’s sad to see our Watermelons go but we can’t wait to see them bloom into BIG Kindergarteners! A huge thanks to all of our families who attended the program and to those who helped clean up after! Until next month…
Until next month,
The Simon Says Staff
