Going Fishing Craft

Blast from our Past : originally published Dec. 13, 2008

Our AWANA story this week was about Jesus calling Peter, James, John, and Andrew to leave their fishing nets and "Follow Me."

So we made fish - one of each color.

We used chop sticks for the fishing poles.

We tied yarn to the pole and to a sticky back magnet. I should have used glue to get the yarn to stay on the little poles.

We put a paperclip on each fishy nose to give the magnet something to attatch to while they are fishing.

I should have used a bigger magnet.

The kids now have a color fishing game to play at home.

It was store night, so we didn't have much time to play with their fish, but they sure were excited about taking them home!

"Through the Bible" with J. Vernon McGee

Blast from our Past .... this was first posted on Oct. 24, 2008.
But the information is still accurate.

Well, except that we are no longer on dial-up ... now on slow "high speed" cable via our telephone company.   I'm not complaining!   The best part is that we no longer have to take turns getting online.


We had to travel quite a bit today in the car.
So how do you keep up with homework when you are on the go?
Story listens to reading assignments whenever possible on her MP3 player. Today she was listening to the Bible on tape. I'm not sure where we got the KJV version she is listening to - but there is another great one put out by Thru the Bible Ministries along with all of J. Vernon McGee Thru the Bible Sermons. She was listening to Deut. and Song listened to Judges. I'm actually teaching Joshua right now.
The main website is down today for update and repairs, but I have used this link for downloading McGee items in the past. Then I burned it all to a couple of DVD's for storage so we can put them on the MP3 players as we need to.
Since we are on a slow dial-up connection (though Tim says that they put a cable in for higher speeds finally! - so the only thing stopping us is now lack of income!) a friend downloads the bigger files for me and I burn them all to DVD. The girls love picking and choosing what to put on their MP3 players.
