We are having so much fun camping! We took a 2-day trip this past weekend. It was a great time. It is nice to slow down, talk, have devotional time around the fire and genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
I tried to take some photos from the inside but it just looks junked and crowded and it really isn’t. This is Mya in her bed and her kennel in her little corner. You can see that she is just in the “hallway” that leads to a door on your right which is the bathroom and then on to the boys “room” at the end of the RV. Our bedroom (Clara too) is at the opposite end of the RV. The word bedroom literally means a queen-size bed….=) This is a pic of Clara showing you around. She is standing with the fridge on her right side and the stove/sink on her left side. Rustie is in his kennel right next to her.
Here are the boys climbing the dam wall of the lake. We were on a hunt for letterboxes. Letterboxing is very similar to a scavenger hunt but you are looking for a particular object that people hide different places. There were supposed to be 2 boxes hidden at this location, but there were not there anymore. They will need to be replaced. It was still fun looking for them and knowing we found the secret location they were once at. We will definitely continue letterboxing on our camping trips and on other occasions too. Isn’t it beautiful!?!
Well, my girl is going to be 3 (THREE) tomorrow!! I cannot believe how fast time just flies by. I have started searching for a preschool program that will focus on a Biblical foundation and go out from there. I want to really teach Clara to have God’s word in her heart. Since I was such a young, immature parent with the boys this was really lacking and still is. As I mature in Christ, He opens my eyes and shows me my shortcomings so I can pick up the slack and be on par where He wants me. I really desire for my children to have a personal relationship with Christ and to call on Him for everything. I want them to search out a strong, Christian spouse who has a heart for God. In the meantime, it is our job as parents to equip them and not just want this for them but to provide the opportunity to learn these things and to watch us put it into action too. If we do not do this for ourselves our children will not see the importance in it. I am really pleased with this blog . She has been an inspiration to me. All the ideas below came directly from her blog since I don’t have a creative bone in my body.
This is our board with what we want to learn for this unit of the Letter L, number 1, and sight word “see”. It has our Bible verse and a tangible way to use this verse in her daily life. It also has a song. This unit’s verse is Matthew 5:16 “Let your light sine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” I love that she gives you a tangible way to teach your child how to put this verse into action. obey Mommy/Daddy, be kind to others, learn about God, tell the truth, share, show love to others, be brave, and tell others about Jesus. How great is that!! Our song is This Little Light of Mine.There is a small book at the top left. Here are some close ups of the pages. There are all L words and one of them and it also use our sight word “see”. Clara loves it!! She has read it a few times today.
I have also ordered a few other things that will be coming. As I incorporate them I will try and blog about it. It will also hopefully hold me accountable.
