Our boat field trip is this Wednesday! If you signed up to drive, please be in our classroom by 8:30 am. Make sure all your driver information is turned into the office before we go on Wednesday morning (license and registration).  All drivers are welcome but all who signed up are not needed.  If you’d like to change your mind about driving let me know on Monday.  We will be wearing free dress for this trip so you can dress in layers. Sometimes it’s cool in the morning on the boat and then warms up in the afternoon. Please make sure you bring a sack lunch that day also.  We won’t be bringing back anything from our lunch.

At Valentine’s Day each year I always remember a Bible quote, “WE LOVE BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US”

I remember that because of God’s love for us we are able to care for friends, family, and those we don’t even know.  Who is a person who gives you love?  How do they show it?

Comment before Sunday for Bucks!

The moon is out tonight….a full moon!  It’s one of my favorite things to watch!  It makes me feel that God is watching over us all.  What is something you like to watch?  How does it make you feel?  (post no later than Sunday evening for bucks!!)
