March 10th-16th

This week
was just,


It all began with a tween church retreat

We loaded up
one church van,
one church bus,
and two other vehicles
with 30+ 
4th and 5th graders
(and 14 adult sponsors)
on Friday afternoon.

This event was Jungle Girl's
1st "church trip"
other than camp,

This is my 3rd time
at Super Start as a sponsor,
and my first time going 
also as a parent,

the event...

This year's theme,
"What Am I Made For?"
centered around
Romans 11:36,
which says,

"For from Him and through Him are all things.
To Him be the glory forever.


Among the Biblical ideas that were discussed
was a 
Mad Science Lab,

With all the fun at the conference,
you would think we wouldn't need to provide

 To make our stay at the lodge even
MORE entertaining,
an Anime Convention
was going on while we were there.

After such a crazy-fun weekend,
AND losing an hour of sleep 
Saturday night,
we took Monday off from school.

I was so tired...

Homeschooling was a bit shorter this week,
but we still were able to:

*Do some St. Patty's Day writing
*Learn about Venus and her Volcanoes 
*Put together our Lenten Tree

AND Jungle Girl FINISHED her

Here we come!


Can you see why we had such a 
SUPER good week?
