Devotionals! and Pics :)

Hi! First off, thanks everyone for doing the devotions at home with your kiddos... and now more good news!! We now have a devotional book for everyone's home. :) Thanks to a very generous donation... Thank-you! I will be sending these home with your children tomorrow.

It continues to leave me very humbled and aw-struck with the blessings we receive at BCS. I pray everyday, that we all may grow a little closer to Him and use His blessings to be a light in this world. In Jesus name, Amen.

So now, with the devotionals for each home - we are going to follow the day. Meaning, we will read the day September 30th in the devotional on September 30th and so on. I encourage this to be a daily practice even on weekends - If it helps to have the kiddos write the bible verse or title for the weekend devotions as well for accountability purposes, I would love to see them! I will still be sending home paper to write on.

Thank you God for loving us.

And now a couple pics. I missed pics from this …

Fall Fest Awesomeness!

Every year this group of kiddos amazes me with their willingness and excitement to pick up garbage in the rain. It reminded me of the book of Job this morning, rain or shine they didn't question God's plan and they kept a happy heart.

PLUS - the fellowship that followed was really fun too. I did miss the hayride (and pictures of the hayride:) - but enjoyed the afternoon!

Thank you God for your blessings and pursuing us with your unfailing love. Thank you for protecting us and watching over us and bringing us all together. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

It's Raining! Fall Fest Details...

Good Morning!

I'm not sure what today will bring as far as garbage pickup... it's raining a little harder than it has in years past. So hear is the loose plan.

8:15 - School as normal
10:00 - We will assess the rain -- Will post to this site whether we are picking up garbage or not.
If it's a no go, we will continue on with a regular school day until about 11:30.

At 11:30 we will have lunch. All welcome! The BBQs are already made :). Followed by some inside games for the kids and/or some Mr. Phil -- a new christian kids video about the bible.

It should only take about an hour to pick up ditches, so if it lets up at any point, we can do that -- or maybe this weekend if anyone is interested, we can give it a try.

Talk soon.
Thanks for rolling with it. :)
Dear God, guide us in your will and watch over us today. Rain or shine, thank you for your blessings. We love you. Amen.

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…
