DID you know that Mother's Day dates back to the 19th century? Ann Reeves-Jarvis, of West Virginia in North America, started a "Mother’s Day Work Club" to teach women how to properly care for their children. Her daughter, Anna Jarvis, changed it after her mother's death in 1905, as a way of honouring the sacrifices mothers make for their children, and so we have Mother’s Day as we know it today.

All the Little Oaks made beautiful Mother’s Day cards for their moms to surprise them last Sunday, because all deserve to be thanked for their tireless, passionate and endless work. The Little Oaks know that their moms spend a lot of time every day just picking up the things they left around between coming home from school and going to bed. Thanks, mom.
