This week was packed full of more fun – jogging from state to state and learning about birds.
Bible: Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through ME!” John 14:6
This verse is a definite verse to instill in each of our hearts. You and I both will need this in our arsenal when we have the opportunity to lead others to the foot of the Cross. What a wonderful reminder for us ~ that we first have to come to Christ in order to be accepted by the Father God. My ‘job’, as called by God, is to share the truths of God’s Word with my girls. What a wonderful calling as a wife, teacher, and mother!
History and Science: The girls are continuing their study of each State; including the flag, abbreviation, capital, bird, flower and landmarks. We traveled to Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, and South Carolina this week!
A few more postcards from other MFW Adventures’ families:
The Chickadee bird was M5’s favorite bird this week. It’s MA state bird.
The Connecticut state bird is the Robin. (yes – I learned how to spell Connecticut!)
The girls had to measure 14 feet across the kitchen floor. One Robin can eat up to 14 feet of worms in one day.
They also held four pennies in one hand; which is the weight of a Chickadee. Teeny– tiny huh?
Our MFW Adventures co-op Kids made a Robin’s nest (a very edible one too)! I had to help eat it. It was made from: nutella, chocolate chips, chow mein noodles and cereal with grape ‘eggs’ on top! The little red hen had a bite too!
