In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

 The theme for my class this fall is: Learning to Love at Lilly Pond.
Eloise & Daddy helped with the bulletin board.
You wouldn't believe how long it takes to cut all of those blades of grass with safety scissors!

I teach the 4 & 5 yr. olds.
They are so much fun at this age.

 The children learned about loyalty and sticking together.
(Ruth & Naomi)

 They also learned how to be kind and share.
(Ruth & Boaz)
After the story we had a mock wedding reception for the happy couple.

 Eloise attended her first women's conference.
She had a blast dressing up and going to the young ladies class taught by sister Amber.
In the above pic she is standing with Bro. & Sis. Balistero
 and the scripture she purchased at the auction for missions.

Above: Guess what I just got for my bedroom?
To all of my friends who hate the cold.....sorry, but I'm prayin for a blizzard this year!

This is a bit random, but I thought it was funny.
I know you guys are probably thinking I'm sick, but I had to take this picture of Boolee.

Lastly(for this post)
Here are a few of the young ladies that attended our "lock in"
 after our Friday night "Youth Explosion".
Aren't they lovely....even without their beauty sleep?
We haven't stopped!
So far this month we had our
 Pastor Appreciation potluck with space walk and inflatable obstacle course,
our Harvest Party/Bon Fire/Weenie Roast/Hayride,
and Youth Explosion
where we experienced an awesome move of God,
Tons of talent by our youth choir & musicians,
and a "lock in" with tons of pizza, snacks, games, and a bungee run.

P.S. I have also updated our homeschool blog.
The link button is still on my sidebar.
