LQ is in 2nd grade this year and he (we) were assigned his (our) first "project" for the year. A diorama. I must not have paid attention back when I was in elementary school, and I guess I didn't pay much attention when F & V were in elementary school either, because I don't remember ever using the word "diorama" to describe what I think I've always called a "shadow box."
But that's OK. LQ described the word (his teacher sent home an instruction sheet. thank you!) and yesterday he started planning his diorama for a rural farm.
I like reading blogs. Some are inspiring, some make me laugh, some make me cry, many make me think, and many call me to pray. I was blog-hopping this morning and went from Joyce's blog to Marla's blog and read about a James Read-Along.
The book of James has shown up on many occassions
this year. It was at the Priscilla Shirer event I went to in February, it was a focus for Beth Moore's study this year - looking forward to her published study on this one - Jam 1:2-3 is one of my memory verses this year, and only yesterday James 1:12 was my daily verse from my daily devotion (which by the way, I started daily devotions again just yesterday after not doing them for the entire Summer).
We went to my parent's house for a BBQ this past weekend and they set up their swimming pool. It was fun watching them both make a whirlpool with LQ in the water. It reminded me of when I was a kid and they'd play with me, my sister & brother.
