The kids are loving our Jesus Tree!
Today we read the story "Jesus Walks on the Water" from our New Catholic Picture Bible, then it was Chiquita's turn to put the symbol on our "tree."
The kids are also really enjoying the various coloring pages and activities that correspond to each story! There have been days that we have missed getting to all of it, so, this week, I made a folder for each of the kids containing all the pages we have studied so far. That way, when they want to color, they can pull out their folder and "catch up."
I'm sorry it has taken me so long to post our readings etc for next week... It has been taking a bit longer than I thought it would to find the corresponding coloring pages and activities. It's a good thing that I am able to do this late at night while I nurse my teething Snuggles :) I'm just wondering when that first tooth is going to finally pop out!?
Anyhow, here they are, and here are the links to week one, two and three.
