The Walnut Acre Daily - A Reading Game, Children's Ministry Meeting and More

Words to Live By

Colossions 2:6-7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

We Are Learning

Michael and Lauren watched three videos this morning  - 
and did some reading worksheets.

While they were outside playing I printed three words they are learning on paper and taped it to a door. Then, when they came inside they took turns throwing the ball at the words and then telling me which word they had hit. They loved in and I can change the words often to keep the game interesting and them learning new words. 

Austin and Amanda studied Radioactivity in Science. Fission and fusion were studied today. With Doug they work on multiplying decimals by integers.  We read pages 237 - 252 from Heart of A Lion by Gilbert Morris and our Bible reading was Proverbs 4. We would have read more but I was getting so sleepy I was starting to read things that weren't on the page.

In the Kitchen

Amanda made two dishes of broccoli and cheese this morning - one for dinner here at home and one for me to take along to a meeting at church this evening.

Austin cleaned off the kitchen counters for me this evening. 

Outdoor Fun

Michael and I went for an afternoon ramble. He took the ball along and had so much fun throwing and catching it and kicking and chasing after it.

One of our cats, Scout, decided to go with us. Michael was worried he would get lost but of course he didn't, just enjoyed exploring and climbing.

Fallen trees are always so much fun!


CJ spent his free time this evening making paper Christmas ornaments (that he's planning to laminate) to hang on the tree he put in the yard Friday. He also made one for Lauren to take home with her.

We Are Going

Michael and I took Lauren to preschool and then went to the post office to pick up the mail this afternoon. 

This evening the children's ministry team had a meeting at church. It was a dinner meeting, with several different people bringing food. It was an awesome meeting with people who are passionate about  bringing Jesus and the love and hope he gives to every child who comes through the church doors.  We will be meeting again in a week to work on more for the new year. I'm so blessed to be a part of this and it's exciting to watch it all unfold.  

Doug took Austin and Michael to their Scout meeting tonight. It turned out, though, that Michael's group was not meeting this evening so Doug brought Michael to the church and let him play with the other kids in the nursery while he sat in on part of the meeting.

Today's Quote

We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~ Mother Teresa
