Brain Power

This has been a busy day!! I have the Jones kids for school on Thursdays and so we have been doing school since 9am. I have been helping the kids with everything including dictionary work, encyclopedia work, the kingdoms of protista and monera and adding 4+4. It has been an interesting day. If you want to stay brushed up on French Revolutions, American history, and how to make apple pie, just homeschool your kids--and maybe someone else's so you get lots of review!!:) Well, I'll post more pictures later.

Everybody Ought to go to Sunday School

This is most of our children 3-11 years of age. They sing up front every Sundy morning.
Here is our little group minus 5 who were absent. This is all of our children and young people. We have quite a group and are very glad to have such a large number of them. They keep our church on its toes. They are a lively little bunch. I had them get together this Sunday to get a picture. They have been practicing for the Christmas program. It is sounding very good. My class is the 3-6 year olds. They are a lot of fun. They grow so fast. I enjoy teaching this age because a lot of the kids are hearing some of the stories of the Bible for the first time and it is so sweet to see the wonder in their eyes . When I told them the story of Namaan and how he had leprosy, one of the girls just piped up and said "God can get rid of that!" They have such faith! Anyway, hope you all are doing good today. Talk to you later.

The girls at the zoo

Our trip to the remodeled Niabi Zoo

WE took a trip to the zoo about three weeks ago. It was so nice and relaxing. The kids were really happy because Daddy got to go. He is very busy sometimes, especially in the fall when the work is really heavy so they were thrilled. They have been adding a lot to our little zoo and it's fun to watch all the things they are doing. The latest thing is the giraffe exhibit. It is really neat!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have had a great Thanksgiving. Jeff's folks came up to visit us and we have just relaxed and had a great time. We decided to have our own Thanksgiving dinner here at our house. We have never done that before. We are usually at my parents or his. So the kids were very excited to get to do this. It was a lot of fun and went really well. We made tons of food and didn't eat half of it, but we did justice to it by having lots of leftovers:) I'll try to post some pictures of our Thanksgiving if I can figure out how to do it. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready for the holidays to hit like a cyclone!! Trisha
