Ask....

Kaitlyn is such a smart cookie and LOVES learning! She has been very eager to learn her letters and just the little bit Chris and I have worked with her this past week she can pick out the letters a C, S, K and J (all our first initials). I decided to work with her this summer on letters....so naturally we started this week with "A".

We did a couple of handwriting pages and when our sheet said A is for apple...she immediatly said "Adam and Eve" (love that!!!!) Now I know it was a fruit....but her bible stories say apple so we are going with it :)
  God has been pruning away at my heart on the calling we have as parents to exemplify Christ to our children. No better time to live out Deuteronomy 11:19 then now...so Kaitlyn and are going to work on a scripture for the each of the letter we learn. Our scripture for letter A is Matthew 7:7


Kaitlyn and I talked about how we can ask God for things when we pray. So I gave her some examples...."God, I ask you to please not make me scared when I sleep in my big girl bed" or "God, I ask that you  keep Daddy safe when he goes on his trip this week" and she chimed in..."and God I ask that you please let the Aggies win" (HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Oh me, oh my!!! The Ag's are down by 4 right now, so I hope (and Daddy hopes) this little girls prayers work. I love experiencing the innocence and heart of a child!
