Mumps, A Thing of the Past for Roo

Little Roo, affectionately known as SuperRoo, aka SOOPA-ROO)has survived a pretty severe case of mumps and has returned to Pre-School

Dressed in his school uniform, Roo stands in front of the St. Laurence House Refrigerator, waiting for his lunch to be prepared. I notice the banana cake in his hand...

James informs me that Roo is "eating everything and is hungry all the time". Here is Roo's packed lunch. A Bread roll, fried plantain, and french fries. (High carbs for an active boy). Banana cake in one hand, french fry in the other... ha ha ! Banana Cakes are Fr. Seraphim's favorite, especially when they are made by Kadijah - she has a super special touch when it comes to cooking.
