MFW- The ten plagues of Egypt

In our homeschool this fall, we have been reading through Genesis and Exodus. We have been reading recently about the ten plagues of Egypt in the book of Exodus. Our curriculum from My Father's World encourages the kids to dress up and act them out. My girls have really enjoyed doing this... what a neat way to bring Bible learning to life! Their pictures have cracked me up with all of their goofy facial expressions. My BFF is doing the same curriculum with her boys, so we exchange pictures with each other. I thhnk acting it out gives them a better glimpse of what it was like. Of course, we didn't have thousands of frogs, only 50. Our water was turned red by food coloring, not really blood, but you get the idea.
Plague of frogs and water into blood...

 Plague of flies and death of livestock...

 The plague of boils...


 Plague of the death of the firstborn...

 We didn't act out the plagues of gnats and locusts, since they are similar to flies. We also didn't act out the plagues of hail and darkness, since the kids could understand those. We did see a video of a locust invasion though... EW! To think that God hardened Pharoah's heart through ALL of the plagues, causing hardship on all the people of Egypt, and Pharaoh wouldn't let them go! WOW!

You can read more about the plagues of Egypt in Exodus 6-11 here. 

Exodus 9  The Plague on Livestock

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worshipme.” 2 If you refuse to let them go and continue to hold them back, 3 the hand of the Lord will bring a terrible plague on your livestock in the field—on your horses, donkeys and camels and on your cattle, sheep and goats. 4 But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and that of Egypt, so that no animal belonging to the Israelites will die.’”

5 The Lord set a time and said, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this in the land.” 6 And the next day the Lord did it: All the livestock of the Egyptians died, but not one animal belonging to the Israelites died. 7 Pharaoh investigated and found that not even one of the animals of the Israelites had died. Yet his heart was unyielding and he would not let the people go.

Exodus 9:13-15   The Plague of Hail

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning, confront Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me, or this time I will send the full force of my plagues against you and against your officials and your people, so you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth. For by now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people with a plague that would have wiped you off the earth.

Caleb's 15th birthday!

Our boy Caleb is 15 already!?! We had a nice party celebrating him this past weekend. He decided to have a drum theme, it was cool! We had drumsticks and music as decorations, and he loved the gifts. 

 He loves his new FLASH wallet from his cousins...
We got him a new Broncos jersey and shirt to wear under it...
 Since he was in the pep band earlier in the day, we decided to order pizza rather than make something, it was a nice change! The pizza was delicious and easy!
 A new sweatshirt and sweatpants from grandparents...
 Reading his card while Auntie and Nana look on...
 A cool new z-cube... he already figured out how to solve it! What a smart kid!
 He loves his new drummer mug from Nana...
 And the handmade Broncos scarf!
 New tech deck (finger skateboard) ramps from his friend...
 Cool LED drumsticks from Grandpa...
 And a fun Darth Vader shirt! Thankful for the great gifts!
 The birthday boy with his cake...

We are thankful to God for our fine young man and time celebrate another year with him! He's a pretty great teenager so far!



Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”


Proverbs 4:1
Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.

Proverbs 3:11-12
My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.

Halloween 2017

We had a very enjoyable Halloween this year. Since we were out of town the weekend before Halloween, we didn't get to carve pumpkins until Monday. Our daughter Rebekah frequently works on Mondays, so we had to carve them without her. We missed her!

Our kids had fun planning their costumes this year. Mallory wanted to be Hermione from Harry Potter, and we had that costume because Rebekah had done that one year. Bethany decided to be NightWing, which is what Robin becomes when he grows up. Caleb wore his marching band uniform, and Rebekah was Pam from "The Office" TV show, and her boyfriend was Jim.

My fairy costume, I had a crown and a flower band on, but you couldn't see them...

 Mallory and her friend both dressed up as Hermione...

 Bethany and her friends... my best friend's sons... love it!

 Me and my best friend dressed as fairies, unknowingly that the other would match! Lol

It was a great time of dressing up, fellowshipping with friends, and staying warm and safe!
What did you do for Halloween? My parents were out of town this year, so we didn't stop by their house as usual. I was bummed I didn't get a picture of the kids all together!

Psalm 18:28
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.

Psalm 27:1
The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Isaiah 50:10
Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.
