Spring Break

Here's what's been going on with me during spring break. I went to a church St. Paddy's Day party. Dan won a green hat for being the fastest at word search. We ate green food and Irish stew. It was loads of fun!! Mostly we laughed a lot.

I made jewelry for my secret pal at school. Inside the stone it says "Holy One".

I have almost finished staining my kitchen cabnets. Woo Hoo!!!! I've been doing this for about 9 weeks.

I've done a little gardening.

I've journaled a little and doodled a lot.

And I've watched movies. I really liked this one a bunch.

Well, that's spring break.

Medieval Feast

Being a teacher's aide is an interesting job. I've really been enjoying my job.

Right before spring break, we had a medieval feast. (This is where we are in history class.) At the feast we ate beef stew, bangers (sausage dogs) on bread plates (called trenchers) with assorted fruits and cheeses.

After we ate, we held a tournament where the girls were the princesses and the boys were the knights of a princess's court.

The knights made their swords, shields, armour in class a few weeks before. The princesses made their scepters, jewelry, and hats in class a fee weeks earlier.

Now for the competition! We had archery, sword handling, catapult launching, and jousting. Our kids had a blast. So did the parents and teachers!

Now the children know what a knight did for his royalty. And what royalty did. They know from experience what they ate in those times and how they played.

I love my job! Thanks Lord!

I haven't blogged in a long time... I don't know why; I guess I was too busy. Anyway, Here are a few photos from our cruise with some of the church.

We really had a good time and did some of fun things. This was in October of 2007.

Let's see... karaoke night was really enjoyable.

The food was incredible. The ports were very interesting. The shopping was the best. Singing on the back of the ship was fun. But my favorite time of the whole trip was with my brothers and sisters on the top deck under the stars. That was soooo the Lord. The stars were so close and bright. You could see nothing else out there but darkness. It gave me the feeling of being very small and insignificant. And how large my Lord is.
