Spring Break...

is coming!!! I am so looking forward to it. I love Easter time. Being able to celebrate Jesus rising from the dead always gets me excited about the Word again. I have been praying more that I would have this "fire" ALL year long! A few days ago, I talked about Easter with my 2nd graders. I haven't heard any complaining yet, so I think I'm safe. ;o) We talked about how we are having a party right before break, but I wanted to hear their views on Easter. I heard all about the bunny, the candy and the eggs. When I asked if they knew the real meaning of Easter, one kid yells JESUS!! It was awesome. We actually spent a good 5 minutes talking about how Jesus rose from the dead. God has been providing awesome opportunities with my students, my co workers and my roommate. One of my co workers recently started attending a bible study, so she always wants to talk to me about what they are studying. It has been an awesome blessing! I have been praying and praying for them all and God is starting to bless me for my patience and determination.

Today has been very productive! I got up, went to school to get something I forgot, went grocery shopping, cleaned the bathroom, did the dishes, did my laundry AND wrote my Kenya letter. All before 2pm. Not bad... Hope you are all having a great weekend, too!

Quite impressive... I only wish mine were as fun (and productive) as yours.

That's a pretty good snapshot of the kids, but what's the weird old guy doing with his hands?

Clearly, he is showing them how to multiply by 5! He did a darn good job, too!
