Here are a few pictures from our time with her.
After lunch we were invited to walk with her to the library so we could see her picture on the library doors. To encourage reading, the students to read during each month. The goal is 80 books. Since she is learning to read, she is allowed to have books read to her. Only one student per class can be the winner and they get their picture up on the library doors, their name anounced over the intercom system and and be a part of an ice cream party. She was the only one in Kindergarten that made it to 80 books. (Last year she won in Pre-K too.)
Close up of her picture.
I am one blessed chick that thanks God every day for His grace, love, blessings, and unmerited favor! Are you counting your blessings? What has God done for you?

You might think that I'm rushing it a little since Thanksgiving is still a week away, but let me say that I am thankful for our country and all of God's blessings -- I thank Him everyday. However, I am even more thankful for the birth of His Son and what that represents -- the plan of salvation! So, I'm ready to begin the Christmas season now.

This first view is not too bad.
This one shows where she cut -- pretty much straight across.
It could be MUCH worse, but Grammie thinks he's still so cute. Big sister just may have cosmetology in her future :) I love those little munchkins!

I wonder if the house on the right could be the parsonage? If so, I wonder how the life in that parsonage compares to the life in the one where I live. Hummm.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Starting early here. This is my son and grandson.
A few of the "peacemakers". She's a coach at our local school.

Putting this chapter to memory has been an awesome journey. I am one of many who has been doing this all year long.
Actually, I have memorized 25 verses. I included my "motto" verse into mix. Now I am "polishing" and working to make my recitation smooth and expressive.
I am fortunate to be able to go to Houston in January to say my verses! What a reward for the work over the passed 10 1/2 months.
I encourage you to do this next year. Hiding God's Word in our hearts is a wise thing.

This one is apple pecan but my favorite is strawberry/cherry. The class likes that one, too. That group of awesome people are so worth any effort I put forth to feed them -- spiritually or physically! I am truely blessed to share in their lives.
