Our story in BF Character study this week was When I Was Young in the Mountains
and we also listened to The Relatives Came~
Cythia Rylant is one of favorites!
We had a great discussion about family and how they all came to their forever.
We made Family Trees by...
Tearing the trunk and branches,
Adding tissue paper for leaves,
Punching apples for people~
Printing maps of China and marking where their birth family lives.
Adding God to the top because He willed it all.
In the end we all gave thanks for our amazing family
whether born in mom's body or heart...
We're ALL loved more than we could ever imagine
because God FIRST loved us!!!
God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
