Play is such a powerful vehicle for learning. We spent yesterday acting out Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. It is just hard to believe that a city that so jubilantly welcomed Jesus called for his death days later… This will be a week full of lots of dramatic retelling of the final week leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus.
To start with, the kids prepared by making their own palm branches…
So simple – merely cut out hand prints taped to bamboo skewers and donning playsilks!
Even the youngest cousin was an eager participant!
Preparing the way into Jerusalem.
“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord”
An exuberant crowd.
It is just beautiful to behold children internalizing the most wonderful event in world history and re-enact God’s grand rescue plan!
So many wonderful gifts to continue to count…
cousins excited over playsilks…
a sister who gets us all exploring natural dyes for eggs!
Proud boy expressions…
knowing that God will never give up on you…
collecting fresh eggs with friends.
an offer to borrow an incubator and eggs to incubate.
online friends who become in-person friends.
smooth and easy pregnancy week!
clear signs of baby growing.
