It was a good weekend around here. Family movie night on Friday, and Josie had a birthday party for one of her very best church/school friends on Saturday. It was an arts and crafts party, which was right up her alley! Today was a great day at church, and we had our annual church Thanksgiving potluck tonight-yum! We are blessed to have such an awesome church family-we love our church.

This was Josie’s recitation homework tonight. One thing I’ve been so impressed with since coming to JECA is how much and how FAST these kids can memorize-it is amazing! The other day, Josie’s class recited Proverbs 2:1-15 in morning assembly. It was great! I need to get that one on video….


Today we had a Operation Christmas Child packing party after church. I wanted Josie and Jack to do this-it is something I have vivid memories of doing when I was little at my church, and it is a great way for them to be able to participate in giving. We went to Dollar General yesterday, and I let them pick out all the stuff to pack in our boxes. Then today we packed them, wrote a letter to put inside, and prayed over the boxes. We also played lots of games with our friends :). It was a fun afternoon!
