We had a great American girl class this week! It was exciting to begin a new semester and meet some new girls. First, I asked the girls questions about our story, Meet Rebecca, (book one in the Rebecca series). After we discussed our book, we began our craft for this week.
Our craft was to add 24" of lace to a 6" square of muslin by hand-sewing. This was a challenge for most of the girls. The younger girls needed help, including my younger daughter Bethany. This is her first semester in this class!

Coloring the Geography pages...
I was hoping to read a part of the book The Family Treasury of Jewish Holidays, but we ran out of time. I planned to read pages about Shabbat (Sabbath) to them. But the hand-sewing took longer than I expected. The girls did great in class, and are so sweet. It will be nice to get to know them better during the semester!
It was a fun class and I am looking forward to next week!
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
“If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath
and from doing as you please on my holy day,
if you call the Sabbath a delight
and the Lord’s holy day honorable,
and if you honor it by not going your own way
and not doing as you please or speaking idle words,
14 then you will find your joy in the Lord,
and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land
and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.”
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
