Easter Painting

This year we encouraged the boys to paint something while we read from the Bible about Jesus' Crucifixion and Resurrection.  It was a great Saturday activity that really kept them in focus on the holidays of Good Friday and Easter.  We had so much fun, we're planning on hanging the artwork in our living room and may have created a new tradition for our family!

Turtle Friend

We found a turtle
Joel wanted to name him "Stick", Luke wanted to name him "Naranja"
Made him a home for a few days

We had alot of fun with him for the week we kept him
he seemed to have alot of fun with us too
We let him go and maybe we'll see him again!
Goodbye Turtle Friend!
