We're Behind!

We are still finishing up Heroes in History. Jasmine did the friendship pins. We haven't gotten any farther on Just for Me with Kayla but hope to get her going here soon. So if you're behind or just starting, no worries. Go at your own pace. We are trying for about 10 pages a week. I still have lots of books to give away for different things so scroll back through the posts and see if you're eligible for any of them because the pile keeps getting knocked over on my desk!!!

I had a bunch of beads for this craft when I did it at a bookstore, and they all got dumped together. Jasmine helped me sort them out and put them in Ziploc bags.

Craft Pictures

Here are two girls doing the Tie dyed shirts a little different way. Looks like a lot of fun. And notice they did theirs outside! We did ours inside and turned the kitchen blue and orange! (You can see ours in the September 19 post) Anyone else do one of the projects? Remember, send a picture and chose a book from the Sept 30 post.

Books of History

This week the girls reading The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible should be in the chapter called "Heroes in History." By the end of the week we should be at about page 78. If you're behind, no problem. Take your time learning about some of the Bible's unlikely heroes.

I think my favorite judge is Shamgar. He killed 600 Philistines with an oxgoad, a common farm instrument. Sometimes when it seems I have no true abilities or talents, I think about Shamgar and the fact that he used what was at hand to do God's work. Certainly we can all do that! What can you use for God?

The Just for Me girls should also be reading about Old Testament Heroes. Kayla has just started so we are behind the others.

Remember to leave your comments and send your craft pictures. Once I've heard from you four times, I'll send you your copy of One Year Devotions for Girls Starring Women of the Bible.

This Week

Kayla joined the Fall Challenge. Jasmine read the first few pages of Just for Me: The Bible with her.

We are lagging a bit behind and have just started the books of history but hope to do some catching up this week. I need to make time to read with Jasmine ten minutes a night out of the Bible book. That doesn't sound like much at all, but some days she goes activity to activity and then finishes her homework after 9:00. That may not sound that late, but when you consider she has to be up at 5:15, it's late.

I still have lots of books to give away. So keep sending pictures, leaving comments and letting me know how you're doing. And it's not too late to start. You will just end later, like Kayla, and that's fine.
