Learning about money and a new bike!!

Daddy and Kaitlyn have been working for the past 7 months to learn about chores, money, and the importance of giving and saving. You might remember my cute story about giving our money to Jesus here.

Little Miss spotted a Big Girl bike at Wal-mart about a month ago. To my surprise she had $42 in her envelope for saving. She knew her bike cost $53, so she worked hard to do all her chores and with a couple of bucks from mommy and daddy she had the money she needed!
She looks like such a Big Girl!!
Watch out dad, I hear the "rides" we buy her from here on out get more and more expensive :)

Showing God's Love: Love Notes for Africa

We had a blast having all our friends (and some new friends) at our Love Notes for Africa play date!!! 

We had 3 stations for the little one's to visit.

At station #1 the little one's learned about Africa
 At #2 we decorated Love Notes and our donations that Wynne and Stephen will take with them this week to Uganda and Ethiopia!!!







And at #3 our friends took home a magnet to Pray for Africa this week!


 Steve-O watched the little one's for us!!
 My friend Leah brought BeadForLife jewelry made by women in Uganda!! So cool


 Even Miss Mabry shopped!
 What a blast we had with our friends!!


Thank you Sweet Jesus for the opportunity to show 
my little one's about your love!

"Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deut 6:7

Learning the Letter F.....Love Notes for Africa

Our scripture for the Letter F is
"For God so loved the world that he gave Jesus" John 3:16 
We started talking about the World! What a BIG concept to a little girl!

My friend Wynne is going to Africa next weekend to visit some orphanages and I knew that making Love Notes to the African children would be good for our hearts! What an awesome way to show Kaitlyn that Jesus does love all the children of the world, and he can use us to show them!

So, you are invited! Come make love notes with us!

What does being Jesus' heart, hands and voice look like for a child?

Let's show our little munchkins and help support Wynne & Stephen Elder as they travel to Ethiopia and Uganda to love on orphans!

Bring your little one to our house! Come and; Go anytime between 8:30-10:30 Wed July 27th

Bring one of the following items. We will color a picture or write a love note to the little boy or girl that will receive our donation.

Bring bubbles, puzzles, games, jump rope, nail polish, stickers, coloring books, markers, writing pens, crayons, or granola bars.

Thank you God, for giving your Son for all the children of the world!

Learning the Letter E

We are learning the Letter E this week. 
Our scripture is Psalm 150:6 "Everything that has breath praise the Lord"
 I have found the easiest way for KK to memorize a scripture is with music so we listened and danced to this song lots!!!

We made a Letter E elephant hand print craft 
And had a fun Letter E Lunch

We are already getting ready for Letter F!!!! 
We are inviting all our friends over next week as we learn our scripture 
"For God so loved the world that He sent Jesus"
Look for our next post...Love Notes to Africa
