Birthday Fun & Garbage Pickup. :)

We are excited for another week at BCS!

God is already working in so many hearts, including my own, teaching us and guiding us. It is such a blessing to get to know each child and see their individual beauty, strengths, and struggles. It amazes me how intricate we are each made. Psalm 139:14 We are fearfully and wonderfully.

God help us know you better and walk with you closer. Thank you for your love and blessings. Amen.

A picture from last weeks birthday party! -- Thank you Cassie for the awesome cake. :)

Also, don't forget!! this Thursday is the fall fest, September 20 -- we will be picking up garbage about 10:00am. Lunch and games will follow.

Please let me know if you would like to walk along for garbage pickup and/or would like to bring food.

Exploration Monday. Is Genesis History.

We kicked off our first exploration Monday today, complete with devotions, yoga, a look into Exodus, math facts, piano lessons, typing, snacks and the beginning of 'Is Genesis History?' A study on the scientific discoveries that support Genesis as a history book. Very interesting for all of us! 
Dear God, Continue to shape our lives and bless the school. Keep us ever focused on you, your truths, and your love. Thank you for blessing us and loving us so completely. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Here the kids took a look at erosion and how quickly water can change the landscape.

Blessing Tree

Pretty amazing and blessed first week of school. On Thursday we created a blessing tree on the board behind the kids (in the picture). But, as you can see, they are so thankful, we can't see the tree anymore! Psalm 23:5 says "You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings." It's humbling to think of our almighty and amazing God as honoring us -- that although we are broken and imperfect, He loves us and blesses us with so much. He deserves the honor -- yet He loves us first. "We love because He first loves us." -1 John 4:19

Thank you God for loving us. Amen.

Also, thanks for reading the devotional as a family and practicing writing at home! I will continue to send home devotionals and extra paper every day.


First Day. School Pics. Homework.

Hola! It was a pretty awesome day. It's really wonderful to be back and see all the kiddos again. They teach me so much. :)

Please email if you would like me to email you your child's school picture/s from below.

Also, along with the school exempt form, I also sent home a print out of a devotional along with lined paper. I will be sending home the devotional/paper every night. The devotional is to be read with your child/ren. and the writing assignment completed to be brought back the next day :

Grades 2-4 - Write the bible verse at the top. (I saw today's was longer, but I believe it's still doable for grade 2.) If it's not, I understand!

Grade 1 = Write one sentence of the bible verse.

Grade K = Write the title, including upper/lowercase letters.

PreK = Listen! and maybe point along when ready.

Thank you!

Enjoy the pics! They are a wonderful group. Thank-you God for blessing us and may you be our sole guide. Help us to hold tight…

Ready, Set, Go!!

We are so excited to be starting another year, growing in faith and unwrapping each day to see what God has in store.

A couple notes about tomorrow :

1. I will be sending home the SD state exempt form that has to be filled out for each family and returned to the district you live in. If you are in the Clark district, please bring back to school the following day and I will send them all in together, per their request. Please call or email with questions. This is for K-12. PreK is not required.

2. Please text Bobby or myself if your child has any food allergies.

3. Check the website daily or subscribe on the homepage so you will be notified when I post as I will be posting updates via the website instead of texting with updates.

4. Kiddos need to or get to :) pack a sack lunch on Wednesdays!

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Dear God, Watch over us this year. Walk us day by day, holding close to you. Teach us to draw nearer to your plan with every step. Lead us by your tr…

Back to School!?!?!? - Well not quite yet but getting closer!

Hi and hope everyone is having a very blessed summer. Although I'm not 100% ready to roll into the new school year yet, the anticipation of fall is starting to build. It's always exciting to see what Jesus will unfold through our time together. I pray that we are all able to grow in faith and love and that He will guide our time together.

A little bit of business.

First off we are looking to set up a work day either August 18 or 25. Can you please text or email me (or comment below) which day may work better. We can use all the help we can get. Projects include : tinning back side of roof, new back door, replacing front sidewalk with pavers, and painting outside. Also, could you tell me which project you might be interested in helping with. There will be some overlap -- but it would be good to have an idea so people can bring tools as needed.

I have posted this year's school calendar to the Upcoming Events. Please take note. Also our daily schedule has changed some so plea…

The One Jesus Loves.

I hope everyone is enjoying reading the bible as a family. I updated the readings today. (Sorry I missed a couple days). We are now onto Acts!

How did everyone like John? Would love to hear any additional thoughts or comments.

I love how John refers to himself as "the one that Jesus loves". How confident John is that Jesus does love Him. I aspire to be more like John -- to know with and proclaim with complete confidence how very loved I am by Jesus.

John 14:1

John 14:1 Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.

Jesus reassures us once again that we can trust Him and we need not worry. I can't hear it enough.

He goes a giant step further in 14:12 I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.

This is huge! Jesus does miracles and heals people -- How is this possible that I could do works like Jesus? I believe John 14:10 gave us the answer -- The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. So it's still not about us! :) Jesus allows Gods works and words to pass through Him. It's so much bigger than us -- and completely awesome that we get to be part of the creator's plan! These verses actually pretty much blow me away. We have a tendency to make our God so small -- and He is so much more loving and capable than we understand.

Dear God, Helps us know y…

I AM not I know

John 9

I really can't get enough of this story. In John 9:30 the man born blind says, "He healed my eyes, and yet you don't know where he comes from? --9:33 "If this man were not from God, he couldn't have done it."

Amen! God is love -- love is from God. Here is a man, Jesus, so full of God that He exudes love by healing and forgiving and loving the unlovable. He is an example of God and therefore an example of love. He's awesome! And it's really, completely amazing to me that God can be so incredibly powerful and so completely love. It is the most beautiful combination really.

Then we have the Pharisees...  they pull the defense card and start calling the healed man names and then they proceed to throw him out.

Which, brings us right into 'Spiritual Blindness'. In John 9:41 Jesus says, "If you were blind, you wouldn't be guilty," Jesus replied. "But you remain guilty because you claim you can see."

I am so guilty of …

Living Water

John 7 --

Jesus begins teaching openly at the temple and the Pharisees start getting pretty upset. This man who wants nothing and doesn't play by the worldly rules is healing and really just being quite kind and says He is from God. He's loving everyone -- especially those who 'don't deserve it'. 

I love Jesus.

Then he offers us all living water... What is living water?-- John 7:39 says The spirit -- the 3rd piece to the trinity (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit). I feel like every day I grow in a little better understanding or personally letting go of this world and understanding :) -- to allow the spirit more freedom in my heart. One thing I have learned, the Spirit contradicts worldly reason.

As a society, we are focused on controlling situations, being right, knowing everything, reacting, planning, judging, getting ahead -- They are re-occurring themes... but the Spirit asks us to wait, be still, don't judge, don't react to everything -- be still and use…

Don't Be Afraid. Believe. Bread of Life.

John 6:1-40

I just really love John 6:20 -- but He called out to them, "Don't be afraid, I am here!" He was with the disciples when the storms were raging on the sea -- and He is with us through every storm in our lives... calling to us 'Don't be afraid, I am here.' He's so much closer and bigger than we can fully understand. Makes me want to dance. :)

John 6:29 -- He goes on to say, "This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent." Let's believe together! By living His love! I'll be the first to admit that I can't love perfectly -- or anywhere close for that matter... but He can -- I only pray for less of me and more of Him... everyday.

Finally John 6:35 -- He offers himself as the bread of life to those who will take it -- to those who will believe in Him. Sharing that with this, we will never go hungry again. What an awesome and simple existence -- to need only Him... to strive for only Him. He also offe…

Testifying with Love.

John 5:31-47 -- Today we read about John the Baptist being a witness to Jesus and one other witness! :)

Why is Jesus saying His miracles and teachings are witnesses to directly connect Him to Our Father in heaven (John 5:36)?  Because God is love! 1 John 4:8. All of Jesus' miracles and teachings come back to ONE common principle -- LOVE! --- unconditional, all-encompassing love! He heals the broken, weak, sick, sinful. God could've sent a force that was so big and so great it would have scared us all to pieces and forced us into fearful submission to obedience... But that is not God. He literally is love. He's not asking for submission out of fear -- He's calling us to have a relationship with Him out of love. It's so awesome and amazing to me that the creator of the universe is love. The all-powerful Lord is love.

It is also puts into perspective the power of love. The word love gets tossed around alot which may dim the understanding of it's power -- but it s…
