Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.
Another source of inspiration for everyone this week was the end of Treasures of the Snow. Because the kids were so into the story, we finished it a week ahead even while starting it behind in the curriculum. The day we finished the story, everyone drew a picture of their most memorable point of the story. Very cute! That night at bedtime, Eli said, " I wonder what the Hittite Warrior will be like." The Hittite Warrior was suggested in the back of the curriculum for these weeks and I'm going to try to squeeze it in as a read-aloud. I see there is quite a bit of reading coming up, though, so we'll see how it goes! I think I'm reading it for as much my interest and benefit as theirs!
And here is a sample of what Micah does while we are doing all of our reading:
We had to skip all of our art lessons this week because we were supposed to go outside and draw a flower...not possible! I was going to buy some flowers so they could look at one and draw it, but kept forgetting and now the week is done.
Other than that, everything else was run of the mill. Zeke got to start up his Spanish lessons again today, which he was excited for.
Happy 2nd Birthday to our cousin across the country!
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

Here's the official measurement of snow = unimpressive!
Drank hot chocolate...how could you cry after this?
Last week we read about Moses and the Bronze Serpent and the end of his life leading the Israelites. This week, it was Joshua and his campaigns to claim the promised land. I have been using some coloring sheets and extra projects from DLTK-kids.com and this site. This helps the younger kids stay involved. Zeke doesn't touch them though, but he can hang in there with the content much better. As I was packing up yet another bookshelf, I found a Bible Hero book I had from a few years back and can use it for some projects with Gideon and Samson next week. Here are the kids with their models of bronze serpents on poles, and Zeke and Abby playing a game of Senet!
And, here it is! We have been waiting to do this project for quite some time. We actually started it in October, with the first layer of paper maiche. Added a few more layers last week, and completed it this week! The kids have had fun playing some kind of "King Tut" game all week.
