Digg that Bible, Dawg

by Laura on October 13, 2011

And, now, for some happy . . .

I looked at my school schedule last week and noticed we were already on week 12.  Combine that fact with the reality that we were all beginning to hate phonics workbooks and math facts, and our homeschooling took a “fall break” of sorts this week.  We read bunches and even did the ol’ volcano with the spewing vinegar-and-baking-soda trick {yeah, you know the one}. The kids took a “field trip” to a pancake shop with Matt, and we took a day to do all those creative painting projects that are too messy , I mean, I don’t have time for in the regular school week. We also busted out a gansta’ rap for a Bible verse we talked about one morning– 1 Thessalonians 5:17.  Yeah, potentially, the highlight of the whole week. Well, not potentiallydefinitely the highlight.

    Hey Laura I did not know what verse that was Now I do. Funny that I would read that right now, because the other day I locked my keys in my truck. I had driven a Tow Truck before and had a lockout tool but it got stuck to where I could not get it out, and had to break in through my Sliding glass window, which I was able to do without breaking a window too. That was one of the first versus I memorized when I first started back to church 6 months ago. I love it so much meaning in one sentence, as in all scriptures. It could always be worse.

      Mark– sorry about getting locked out, but what a helpful practical verse to remember at such a time!
