Full to the Brim and Running Out

Without fail the last weeks of the school year are full to the brim.  This week was certainly no exception.  Tuesday and Thursday morning the elementary students got their day off to a start with two hours of swimming lessons.  The elementary teachers were blessed to work in their classrooms during this time.  I'm not even going to lie, I jumped for joy and clicked my heels when the vans pulled out. There's plenty to be done in my classroom!

Thursday afternoon we all took a break from our classes and witnessed the baptism of six young people, five of them students or former students at Sahel.  It was a special blessing to hear these young people speak of their desire to follow Jesus wholeheartedly and to invite their peers to keep them accountable to the commitment they were making.

It is hugely encouraging to see former students return and to see that they are continuing to walk in the truth.  C graduated last year.  Early in May he returned to help out with the swimming program.  He's been helping in P.E. and Art classes and blessing tired teachers with his enthusiasm and willingness to love on the students.  I'm pretty sure there are more than a few people who are trying to convince him that he needs to be an elementary teacher! :) 

Friday morning the Fourth Graders put on a Medieval Fair for all of the elementary students to enjoy.  There was plenty of fun to be had from donkey cart rides, magic tricks and juggling to sword fights, jousting matches and tug of war.

And in other news, it's time for home assignment because I'm running out...
out of pizza sauce,
out of pepperoni,
out of parmesan cheese,
and out of bacon bits,
not to mention just about every other luxury item.
All I've got left is a handful of chocolate chips.
Yep it's time for home assignment because everyone knows you can't survive without chocolate chips! :)
