Blessing put a nurse's cap on her head and said I am a nurse and all the children laughed. One of the children points at her and asked her 'where is your nurse dress?' They all giggled and showed different forms of joy. By 12:30pm it is time for Lunch. Blessing helps the children out of their costumes.

They had a lunch of potatoes, green peas and chicken nuggets, with yoghurt and fruit muffins for dessert. ...read more.
