Ice Skating Pics & Blanket Tying Reminder.

Hey All!

The kids worked very hard this morning to get all their work done and we had a very nice afternoon at the rink. They are all off to a great start. We will not be skating on Dec. 4th because we are serving at the pantry in Webster that day -- but we will get to skate again after the new year! Enjoy the pics :)

Also, don't forget tomorrow is our blanket tying and potluck. We will eat at noon -- if we are not at the school - we are in the church basement, across the street -- that is the plan for now. We will try to tie blankets until 2:30.

Dear God, Thank you for blessing us. Guide our hearts and our hands to serve and glorify you! Thank you for your love and goodness. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.







Psalm 34:5 Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy.

Ice Skating!

We have the opportunity to ice skate 2 Tuesdays before Christmas and 5 Tuesdays after Christmas with the CACHE Homeschool Group... weather permitting. The dates are November 20th and December 4th from 12:30 to 2:30. Cost is still $5/child or $10/family. Skates are available at the Ice Arena.
We will be eating lunch at 11:30 on skating days and then dismissing at 11:50. If you would like to go skating, please let me know in advance. If you would like your child/ren to go and need help with rides, we would be happy to help! - Just let me know before hand.
Also, I just realized, the 4th may not work as we will be serving at the pantry from 3-5pm. I will keep you posted on the 4th. We could possibly skate from 12:30 to 1:45 and eat and rest before serving, but that may be too much. I will assess. But please let me know about the November 20th!.

Processing Sight and Sound and Morning Work Pics.

Wrapped up another week. They go so fast, but I'm not going to lie - I'm looking forward to the weekend! :)

On Wednesday we talked about how we receive information through our eyes and ears and a little about how our body transfers this information to our brain. We truly are fearfully and wonderfully made! Psalm 139:14 

After, we took in sight and sound by writing mini-compositions and playing them on our homemade colored chimes.  Enjoy the pics. It was a very fun project!











And a few more pics from this morning. It really is a blessing to watch these beautiful guys and gals learn and work together.





I hope everyone has a very blessed weekend! Luke 1:45 -- You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said. We have such an awesome God.

Exploration Monday & Pics!

Today we kicked off the morning with devotions and yoga. Then we continued on with 'Is Genesis History' -- once again bringing volcanoes into the topic, but this time, pointing to the layers of rock quickly created by volcanoes and other natural disasters, ie the flood.. :) And bringing to light some of the inconsistencies of the conventional paradigm. Then, it was on to exploring/creating, snack, spelling, piano, writing, bible. :) A very blessed Monday.

Enjoy the pics.

1 John 4:19 - We love Him, because He first loved us.








No School Today. Nov 1.

Good Morning.

There will be no school today. Our family is sick.

Please do devotions, practice math, and read 1 John chapter 1. Here's a link if you don't have a bible handy at home : https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John+1&version=NLT

I would love the kids to either draw a picture or write a story about what it might mean to live in the light or what that would look like.

Thank you for your understanding and sorry for any inconvenience.
Have a good weekend.

Happy Halloween!

Dear God, teach us to be a light in this world. Thank you for blessing us. Amen.









Jacob Wrestles God Art and More Pics.

Some pics from last week during our morning math and reading time -- and a little exploration. :)

ALSO!

First Church in Watertown is currently doing a sermon series on Genesis 32, where on Jacob's return home to meet the brother he deceived and tricked (Esau), he wrestles with a higher power on the banks of the river.

I had asked the kiddos if they would be willing to draw a picture for the church about this story, and they were very excited by the challenge. First church printed them on the fronts of all of their bulletins this weekend -- I took a sample of each child's picture on the front of a bulletin and will send them home with your child tomorrow.

Thank-you God for blessing us. Let all we do be for You. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Fleece for Tie Blankets.

We are in need of fleece for the tie blankets we will be making on November 21. Each side of each blanket requires 1.5 yards -- equalling 3 yards/ blanket.

Our goal is 20 blankets. Even if we don't finish them all on the 21st, we will finish them later.

We have fleece for 5 blankets already donated - so we have 15 blankets left we need fleece for. Let me know if you are interested in contributing and how much. I have been told that Walmart is one of the cheaper options.

Blessings!  and I'm very excited to be expanding our ministry work and to be providing an opportunity for the kids to grow outward.



BCS Board Meeting Recap and Upcoming Events.

We had our 4th quarter board meeting last Friday.

1. There will now be a building committee taking care of maintenance. So far, this committee includes Kyle and Bobby. If anyone is interested in being part, please let us know. We may still have work days - but the committee will oversee what projects need to be done and how it will happen.

2. We are going to be doing more serving events in our community and surrounding areas.
Dates to remember :

November 21 : Blanket Tying and potluck. We will do a potluck and tie blankets on the Wednesday before thanksgiving (aka pajama day :). Eat at 12:00 and tie blankets from 12:30 - 2:30. This is not just for the parents to do, but for the kids to serve for a couple hours helping tie blankets. That is the focus. If anyone would like to contribute fleece or help out that day, please let me know. We will have a better understanding of how much fleece we need over the next week or so.

Dec. 4 : Serving at the Pantry in Webster. We will be handing out …

Reading Time and the Power of Observation.

I love reading time photos. I think it's the peace and the contentment from just paper and words - and imagination. Beautiful. 
Then! We have been talking about the power of observation and that discoveries stem from someone asking a question and seeking an answer. So today, we partnered off with a clipboard and magnifying glass and made observations. -- and what a beautiful day it was to adventure outside.
Enjoy the pics. 
Thank You God for blessing us. May we draw closer to you with every breath. Thank you for your love. Teach us your ways and guide us by your truths. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
