I think this counts as our FIRST, official lapbook! This is the first time each girl has made her own and we have spent the week learning the different things about butterflies found in this lapbook. I admit, I was a bit skeptical about whether or not the girls would actually learn anything from doing school this way! I knew they would love the cutting, pasting and pretty pictures…but would they learn the information? But, my doubts were diminished as the girls told me facts about ...

During our time in Alaska, one of our main "jobs" was to have a VBS for the children of Muldoon Road Baptist Church and University Baptist Church. We just fell in love with the people of these 2 churches! Our hearts were also broken for the struggles they are facing.

One church has had multiple staffing issues, being without a pastor for long periods of time. One of the churches ... Read More about Alaska – VBS
