Well, Spring Break is officially over – we had tons of fun relaxing, being outside in the warm weather, and spending time with family and friends. Brendan and Ryan were not very excited to start school this morning :), but they did fine! We’re getting close to the end of the year and just need to hang in there and finish strong (I needed a little “pep talk” too)!
We have two new families to pray for this week – the Goerger’s and Grammy and Pappy (my parents). We are still learning about Elisha and Naaman and working on the first part of our memory verse. The Secret Garden is going great and we have a few more weeks to finish it before we begin our last read aloud for the year. I decided to have a “review” lesson on prayer and we’ll be using the ACTS method:
A – adoration
C – confession
T – thanksgiving
S – supplication
I have several names of God that the boys read aloud to help them with the adoration aspect and then we go through the acronym as we pray. It’s a great review for me too!
I also put some poetry in the boys’ workboxes in honor of National Poetry Month. They’ll have a short poem to read each day and we may complete a few poetry activities later in the month. Oh, guess where we’re going for P.E. tomorrow??? JUMPOLOGY 🙂 !!! FUN!!!
