☀️ The sunshine has us reflecting on recent nature adventures! 😎

Our friends from St. Jude of the Lake Catholic School and Hosanna Lutheran Forest Lake immersed themselves in God’s beauty during end-of-the-year field trips, 🚌 where they soaked up the sun, sand, and shade - and explored the world of insects! 🐞 One Hosanna preschooler even made friends with a dragonfly, who landed on her hand! 🤩

Seeing our young learners explore and marvel at God’s creation fills our hearts with joy! 🌸💛
