Back to school. Bethany was doing English today, lots of writing. Grace was doing Math and History. Hannah was reading and did some Math. We tried on ballet shoes and found that Hannah needed to wear Grace’s and Grace needs new ones, but for today she was wearing Bethany’s old ones. Our dance times moved, so now we need to be there at 1 and 2 instead of 3 and 4.
I had class first, there were 3 other ladies in it. So, a really small class. I think the date came faster than people were expecting, so maybe we will have a few more people by next week. Grace’s class is huge, 13 kids, I think a few of them might get moved to another class because of their age. Hannah’s class has 11, which is also pretty big. The theme of this session is ‘knowing truth’. We were talking today about two truths of God, that He is infinitely awesome and that He is intimately approachable. We started with Romans 8:31-32 Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Our homework is to list who God is and what He has done, so that’s going to be a long list.
(Can’t read her shirt? It says, ‘I am currently unsupervised. I know, it freaks me out too. But the possibilities are endless!’)
Hannah’s homework was to make a poem about who God is, so far she’s been writing down things she knows about God like: He never lies, He is bigger than the mountains, He doesn’t have to stretch or do the splits (I’m guessing she doesn’t like the new stretches and splits she’s doing in class.) I’m thinking the ‘never has to stretch’ isn’t going to make it into the poem…mainly because I’m pretty sure that Jesus stretched when he woke up in the morning.
Grace has to find a verse on who God is, that is a pretty easy task.
Bethany had an ortho appointment and I went by to get the oil changed in the car. They thought I was back too early, but we did just travel about 3,000 miles, so I thought the car might like a new air filter, new wipers and new oil.
It was TNO tonight, so I had dinner at Whole foods while James took the girls to the mall. Some plans for the week: park day, a visit to the botanic gardens, scientific illustrating with professors as guides at CU and for the weekend maybe an Oktoberfest or a sugar beet fest.
