Jammin’ in Jammies
Each winter the Thunder Ridge KAY do an activity geared toward the younger members of the school. This year they decided to host “Jammin’ in Our Jammies”. It was a huge success! There were around 35 kids and 20 KAY members who spent their Saturday morning together.
The kids enjoyed watching a Christmas movie, eating cookies, drinking hot cocoa, and having a scooter race to see which team could deliver their letter to Santa the quickest. (It was a tie thanks to Isaac going twice and pulling his opponent “home”;) everyone seemed to have a blast! Thank you to the parents who sent their kids to hang out, and to the KAY members who spent their morning with the younger longhorns!
