A Fun Day at St. Mark Christian Preschool

Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to spend most of the day photographing the activities at St. Mark Christian Preschool. The activity was fast paced. Observing  creative drawing and coloring,  meeting Pastor Matske and Frederick the fish in Chapel, watching the free spirits of the children as they waved pink chiffon material in the air to music, to playing on tricycles, listening to Mrs. Burke read about Smelly Bear to marching to music and finally a restful healthy snack. Wow what…

Is there a better way to begin a Wednesday than reading to @Stmarkchester preschoolers? No, there isn't. — Mark Matzke (@ReverendMatzke) January 20, 2016
