|We made quill pens and ink from squishing berries for juice. Olivia signed her John Hancock. :)|
Our name for Jesus has been the Giver of Living Water. Only He can quench our ever-returning thirst. Olivia's memory verse is John 7:37-38, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." A cool connection was made in reference to the Israelites in the desert. When they whined for water, God had Moses strike the rock (which we have already learned is another name for Jesus) and the water flowed from the rock. And then our memory verse this time tells us that the streams of living water (which is the Holy Spirit) will flow from within us. I love how the whole Trinity of God (father, son, and Holy Spirit) is present throughout the bible.
We have done some science experiments involving condensation and evaporation of water and how water is soaked up. There are so many science experiments you can do right in your own kitchen. She really loves doing science. Daddy often gets involved in these with her and that is something she really enjoys. I am proud to say too that Olivia is doing great with her reading and spelling skills. She was able to sound out evaporation and condensation and spell them for me. :) God has really gifted her in this way!
