"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Fall Crafts

The boys and I have had alot of fun getting crafty this fall. We went on several "nature walks" around the neighborhood looking for fall leaves and acorns that we later glued on paper to make collages. We made handprint turkeys and placemats, and even made a "Give thanks" tree with all the things we are thankful for. At our Mom's group, we painted little pumpkins. Our "schoolroom" was looking so festive with everything Carson has done at home and at preschool. One of my favorite art projects Carson did at preschool was an acorn craft. Carson glued the pieces of the acorn together, and painted it. On the acorn was a little poem. It read, "Like an acorn, I may seem little, but God's love helps me grow. Someday I'll be just like a tree, reaching as high as I can go!" So cute! At Carson's Thanksgiving feast at school, he had a special blessings placemat, and made a fruit loop necklace and feather Indian hat! Happy Fall!
