We got off to a great start in our newest country of Russia. We found it on our map and globe (not hard to do since it’s a HUGE country :)), listened to some Russian music, and watched a Families of Russia video. The boys copied the new memory verse and colored their Russian flag pictures while I read a story from Kingdom Tales. Kingdom Tales is collection of stories that are similar to fairy tales except they are from a Christian viewpoint. Today’s story was about “vigilante” grannies who fought evil beings at night. It was full of symbolism and was actually about a group of grandmothers who stayed up at night when everyone else was asleep. They spent time on their knees praying for the safety and well being of their friends and family. It took some prompting before the kids grasped the story, but lead to a good discussion about who prays for them on a daily basis. Very creative!
