Those reading the Just for Me pages should have read about penguins this week. You probably also saw that the illustration for the door hanger in no way resembles the craft! The craft is a door handle hanger not one that covers the whole door. I don't do the illustrations, only the written part. This week you should be making travel snack!
If you do the crafts or activities, send a picture for all of us to see. You've seen how our shirts turned out and how Joy's turned out. I think next time we will not rinse the shirts, but will leave them all night on grocery bags and see if the color sets more. Then wash them the next day.
What is the most interesting thing you've learned so far from or about the Bible?

I want to send one of these books to every girl doing the fall challenge. Here's how it will work. Once a girl interacts 4 times on this blog-starting today-I will send a copy of the book. I want to make sure the girls are really with us : ) They can leave a comment about something they read this week, send a photo with their book or a craft (email@example.com), or anything like that to count. It doesn't have to be deeply profound. Just share and interact with the other girls doing the fall challenge.
CGG to the Bible has a craft this week. It's a tie dye shirt. We did this yesterday and today. Yep, it's messy. I'll be bleaching my counters later. I let all the kids do it, not just Jasmine. They all made two shirts. Some of the little ones dyed men's T-shirts to be sleep shirts. I even made one. I'll be posting pictures soon.
I have a couple of Legends of Faith booklets left. I had more than I thought to start with. If you didn't get one, just go back a couple of posts and leave your comment.

I think we have agreed to start doing ten pages a week starting next week with chapter two. Let's try to read pages 25-36 of The CGG to the Bible or 13-the top of 23 of JFM: The Bible. That way no one will get behind or discouraged. We want everyone to have fun with this. If you do a craft, send a picture so we can all see it.

It was almost bedtime when we got home, but we took time to read the introduction to The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible together.

We'll be starting chapter one next week. It starts off with a quiz to test your Bible knowledge and has an overview of the Bible in The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible. There's a Bible bag craft at the end of the chapter.
Just for Me: The Bible also starts out with an overview of the Bible. It has a Bible bookmark craft in the first chapter.
