Hey, ladies! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. It’s been a really, really crazy week with house stuff and end-of-year school stuff and just other … stuff.
Our school doesn’t do a traditional kindergarten graduation. Instead, they do this fabulous presentation called “Salute to America.” It’s so cool! The students offer recitations of important pieces of American history from the Colonies through our presidents, the Civil War and more. Ellie played Betsy Ross. The program also included a huge reminder that while we are proud of our nation and support our troops, both past and present, our first allegiances are to God and His Word.
I struggled to keep my emotions in tact. Not just because of the enormity of the message provided by this group of five- and six-year-olds, but also because of this decision we have about schools. Do we keep them at this Christian school that we love? Or do we put them in public school after we move? I am so completely torn. There is no other way to describe it.
My co-class mom and I made a special something for the celebration:
This is my first ever “cupcake cake.” (If you’re a fan of CakeWrecks, please don’t turn me in!) What you see is over 140 cupcakes and more than two hours worth of work (not including baking). Count ’em — all 50 stars are there. We were so excited to get this done! In fact, when we finished with the little blue ribbon, we hooted and hollared and even gave a public chest bump. It was a good day.
Okay, enough of my business. How y’all doing with your reading?
It is the end of May which means, if you’re on schedule, you’ve read almost half the Bible already!!
I’m not one of those people. I am happy to say I finally made it to February with my reading of Acts. Pitiful, I know, but I have been keeping up with several other sections and I’ve read ahead in a couple. Also, we may be coming up to a time when I can’t do much else, but read. I fully intend to catch up over the summer while the kids play and swim and I chill somewhere near them.
You’re turn! Tell us where you are, what you’re learning or how you plan to catch up. We can do it!!
