A day of rest. No work. No school. So we choose to celebrate by spending the day with family and/or friends. This Saturday after Sabbath School and church service we spent the day with Samuel's friends Adriana and Gabriel and their parents. After a great meal, childhood tears, an attempt to shake the living daylights out of the neighbor's cat and worship, we visited Bethlehem in Waxahachie, Texas.
Camels, sheep, goats,donkeys, chickens, angels, soldiers, King Herod and a town full of people grumbling about taxes. It was a learning experience for the kids observing the flute players, the wool makers, the "millers", the synagogue, the rug makers, the man de-fleshing rabbit skin, the boy chipping the rock and the soldier who offered money to purchase a child for King Herod.
Samuel says that the best part about yesterday was the whole thing!
