I was able to spend Monday morning in Brittaney’s classroom with her.  What a joy to see her in action with her 5 adorable students.  2012-10-08 11.17.07She is an excellent teacher and her children adore her. I think they enjoyed having a visitor for the morning.

2012-10-12 14.38.38 We are reading one of the Magic Tree House books each month as a reader for our Biome Series.  This month we will be studying the Rain Forest.
We are reading the YWAM Biography on Jim Elliot.  I am really excited about reading this one.  When I was a newer Christian, the church we were attending had a musical presentation of the the life of the 5 missionaries that lost their lives among the Auca Indians in Ecuador.  The presentation was called “At Any Cost” and it was so moving and pierced my heart for missions way back then.
