Nimrod's Temple Tower

Lady Slipper,

Today we learned about the tower of Babel.  We learned that Nimrod was the man who decided to build the tower.  He was Noah's great grandson but he did not believe in obeying God's laws and he did not have the priesthood.  He wanted the tower to be a temple even though he did not have the authority to build a temple. He had too much pride.

Then we read cinderella and learned that her stepmother had pride too. That is why she was so mean to cinderella.

Pride often precedes destruction.

Starflower and I love learning with you. Thank you for playing with her and for sharing your crayons with her. She loves to be with you.

Love,

Mom

I am a Child of God

Starflower,

As we snuggled together after watching "I am a Child of God" (video on Mormon channel) all was calm and quuet.  Suddenly You started to say all the words of the chorus in your little sweet voice.  It was incredible.  I have never heard you say long sentences like that before.  It is so anazing!!  I am so happy I was able to hear it.  Thank you!!  It has been a tough day for me, and your song calmed and inspired me.

I love you so much,

Mom

Bubbles

Starflower,

Inspiration came during family study tonight: I blow bubbles while daddy reads and you enjoy the time more. 

What a sweetheart you are.

Love,
Mama

Costly Apparel

It was tough going for scripture study tonight.  Dad was getting a little tired of thenoise and insisted that girls go outside and run laps or do lots of jumping jacks.  When they completed that task and came back in , there was still a lot of hyper-ness and noise so he said if there was any more sounds, they had to go out and do more jumping jacks before we would continue with the scriptures.

Morning Glory had an inspiring idea and began to make something out of play-dough because that used her hands and didn't make any sound.  It was fun to see how she incorporated what we read about by making a figure wearing costly apparel and a figure of Nephihah, the new chief judge.  

Lady Slipper had fun with it too and even Starflower climbed onto the table to watch.  The girls decided we should do scriptures with play-dough every time because it actually helped them focus better on what we are reading.
