Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

Christmas Party...

Kate & I went to Luke's class Christmas party late this morning.  I wasn't signed up to help at this party, but Luke asked me to come.  I'm glad I went because I was reminded by Luke & a couple of other boys just how important it is to some kids that their Mamas are at these parties :). (I was also reminded of this back at the fall party)....

First, the kiddos played a game where they tossed plastic golf balls into a snowman's mouth...kindergartners are pleased with virtually any game and will line up nicely for these games.  (This would be simply glorious to watch)!  (Luke's 5th in line in this pic -- blue shirt & glasses)....

Luke did better than I thought he would -- Ha!  Physical coordination isn't his strongpoint, and I say that lovingly (it's simple genetics, folks)!  I knew he could do it; I just figured it would take him longer than it did.

The kids then got to play Christmas Bingo -- using "M&M's" as markers!  SCORE!

Then, the kids exchanged gifts with their respective prayer partners!  (The prayer partners were assigned at the beginning of the school year -- the partner is a friend in class to specifically pray for throughout the year)....

Luke's partner is in the red shirt right beside Luke!

Luke's friend knows him well because he gave Luke a "Legoes" kit!

Luke gave his partner a book that Luke *knew* he'd like!

Lastly, the kids spent time ingesting sugar -- Ha! (I took this pic before the cookies were handed out)...

Kate loves to be near her older brother but not necessarily posing for her Mama -- Ha!

Speaking of Kate -- she LOVES to see her brother at school, BUT she takes constant supervision.  She seems to make herself right at home in the classroom!  She has just a *few* more years to wait for kindergarten!
