    Jesus and the Early Church

    Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

    To go along with our study of Hero of Alexandria we learned about Jesus the and the early church.

    At first I thought we would just read the bible but just reading one chapter after another of the new testament was not working.

    So I bought “Case for Christ for Kids (Case for… Series for Kids)” by Lee Stobel

     

     We had really enjoyed “Case for a Creator for Kids (Case for… Series for Kids)” by Lee Stobel for our Creation Study.

    Case for Christ for kids was a great book!

    It laid out the argument against Christ and used logic to look at the fallacies in a kid friendly way.

    Both of his kids books we have read have been a great intro into Apologetics.

    The Adventures in Odyssey has several audio shows about Jesus as well that would be great for this study.

    earlychurch

    For the history of the Early Church we read, “The Ides of April (Ray, Mary, Roman Empire Sequence.)” and “Beyond the Desert Gate” by Mary Ray, “Attack at the Arena (AIO Imagination Station Books Book 2)” an imagination station book,

    and “For the Temple A Tale of the Fall of Jerusalem” by G.A. Henty(which you can get free for your kindle).

    His books seem to be more geared towards 10+, but my oldest(8yrs old) enjoys them.

    They are just a bit more of a challenge for him.

    I also bought “Spartacus (Young Reading Series Two)” by Russell Punter since it was during that time period.

    Storytime

    Friday, March 13th, 2015

    My boys have not been to storytime since my youngest boy was in his fit throwing phase.

    I don’t think he even remembers it.

    play

    My oldest thought some of the things were a bit silly for his age but they both really liked the parachute.

    My youngest boy seemed to really enjoy the whole thing.

    He just seems to enjoy life in general.

    What a beautiful way to live.

    Burn

    grass

    It is always a bit bittersweet to see our back burning.

    I know that getting rid of all of these leaves and dead grass might mean more wildflowers soon but it is hard to see it all gone.

    I am hoping that burning the back will help with our grasshopper problem.

    burn3

    They have been everywhere in recent years and I think it might have to do with my asking Nick not to burn the back in the spring.

    burn4

    I guess I will find out in a few months.

    This dog is odd.

    She would lay down right in the fire’s path!

    Crazy.

    She also decided to use Nick as a resting post.

    I cannot wait for spring flowers to replace the ash!
