...Apollo 11 launched towards the moon. 

What an amazing accomplishment!

Poetry - another first...

Today, the kids were introduced to poetry through their 'Cover Story' curriculum.  Below are their very first poems:

by Nick Smith

Living on the jungle floor,
Playing with each other.
Eating bananas for a snack,
Taking a mid-morning nap.
Little babies nice and fuzzy.
One big happy family.

My Little Brooder Charlotte
by Sam Smith

My little brooder sits on an egg.
She will sit, sit, and sit some more
Hoping to have a chick born.
Maybe a roo, maybe a hen
We don't know for it ain't born.
Hoping to be a mother
So, that's my little brooder.

Scripture Sunday

"So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." ~ Proverbs 2:2-6

This morning, for three hours, my sweet little girl volunteered for the first time at our local library.  Samantha helped shelve books, catalog books and even worked on her alphabetizing skills.  She had a very good time and looks forward to volunteering again next month.  Great job, kiddo!!!
