Oh, The Places You'll Go...

The time has come that our daughter Aleah Megan will be graduating from high school. I search my mind trying to recall how quickly the years have passed. Our sweet little baby girl is growing up... our little "Eah" is starting a new chapter in her life.. and we are so very proud of the beautiful young lady she has become and the path the Lord is leading her on. 

My dear Aleah... Everyday I thank the Lord for the opportunity He has given me to be your mother! I couldn't have asked for a more sweet, loving daughter then you have been. Being able to love you and watch you grow has been such a blessing. I can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for your life. Please know that I am always here for you. My love for you.. my sweet child.. will never pass away. As you journey though your life I pray that God will show you His way and as you follow Him blessings will guide your every step. I love you my Eah! 

For you Miss Aleah... pictures of your journey to graduation.. I thought you might enjoy this! :-)

"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."

Clifford's Happy Easter

Noah finished his Clifford Literature Unit the end of February, but with Easter around the corner he wanted to read Clifford's Happy Easter book. We decided to do a few extra activities to go along with his reading. 

Noah answered questions about what he had read and also completed an Easter Egg Math page. For even more fun we did an egg science project. Placing a hard boiled egg in vinegar for a few days.... yuck.... but also very interesting!! 

Day 1:

Day 2: Now the egg is getting pretty gross... which the boys think is awesome! You can see the shell starting to disappear and pieces of brown "gunk" are all around the inside of the jar. 

Day 3: Time to take the egg out of the vinegar. Noah was very impressed with how the egg felt and looked. Since we used apple cider vinegar the egg was a little brown, very soft (the shell had disappeared), and the fun part the egg was bouncy!! Noah recorded his results in his literature notebook (with the help of Mommy.. since it's hard to write with a broken wrist). 

((Science Project conclusion:: Vinegar acts as a neutralizer and decomposes the outer molecular structure of the shell causing it to decompose leaving the inner skin intact.))

John 11:25-26 (KJV)
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
