Bird Feeder Update - 31.1.20

Today we went to check on our bird feeders.  We went to investigate if the birds had eaten anything.  We found that only two bird feeders had been eaten and the rest were still full!  So we changed our location and we will go back on Monday to see if anything changes.  We did wonder if any squirrels had eaten some as many feeders were on the floor.  Also, all of the bird seed had gone Interesting!....

Fr John came to visit us today. We had planned lots of questions to ask him about his vocation of being a priest.  We then went on to sing some songs together, show him our classroom and even taste some bread from Mass.  We had a great time and learnt so much about what it is like to be a priest.  Could this be our vocation?
