Not Quite Ready, But Promises to Be Fantastic!

So here it is...our large boat for the story of Jesus calling Peter. We started the theme last week and will take it a bit further this Sunday. You can see our neighborhood forming in the background, as well. I'll be sure to keep the photos coming as we add the church and school with the small American Flag, of course...

Construction came to a halt with a bit of the rumbly, recently referred to here at Grace Today, extending to our artist this week as well. I think "the rumbly" is my favorite new description for any sort of illness. It's just more polite, don't you think?

Regardless, we're looking forward to a great year looking at life with Jesus. That's about the best open-ended curriculum you could imagine, eh! And perhaps when our theme is finished, we'll blow up the big boat one last time and all go down the hill and climb in at our nearby beach. Wouldn't that be fun?? Can you imagine if we told the people on shore we were celebrating learning about life with Jesus by hitting the waves in our plastic yacht??

What an awesome kids area. I wish I had that kind of budget for our children. Ours looks a little more dime store. Oh well. Blessings to you and your hard work.

Dear Faith Hope Love Mama...

It's mostly big on imagination. The boat was already there as a toy for a play area, and the paint is cheap. A bit of this and a bit of that...with some hope thrown in. It's amazing how talented people can make somethin' out of hardly nothin'! And I'm very grateful for their talents!! :)

I think Miss rumbly should keep her tumbly out of the boat, or else there might be a rumbly, tumbly, incredible mess.

Yuck.

I came across a comment you left on Mo's blog site, and decided to check out your blog...I'm so glad I did! I've enjoyed reading your posts.

I'm glad you're feeling better, and I like your term, "the rumbly" for illness. I'm surrounded by three guys in my household, and there's not much hope of them using discreet terminology! lol

I'm a very new blogger...drop by and leave me a comment sometime! I enjoy meeting new people, and this is a fun way to do just that. :o)

God bless you...
