Good Bye to Kalli our Intern

Well, it was a fast and fun 15 months with Kalli.   We said our good byes and shed many tears but we all know she will be back for visits soon.  :) 

She had her hand in every major project we have done at church.   She was a gift to us and we hope she leaves here ready to continue to seek God and God's plans for her life.  

I was asked to lead the prayer when this picture was taken and all I could mumble out was, "Father God, thank you for sending us Kalli" then the tears came and I could no longer talk.   My emotions hit me and if I try to open my mouth I will start to sob loudly.  

So if I could have gotten through my prayer that day it might have gone a little something like this,

Father God, thank you for sending us Kalli.  We were blessed by her every day.  She has set the bar high on what a servants heart should look like.  We pray that as she leaves here today she would leave empowered and fully aware of her identity in you JESUS.   I pray you would surround her with your presence where ever she is back home.   I pray for new Godly relationships at home to start.  I pray that the old Kalli would not be the one who shows up back at home but the new confident and bold Kalli who will say yes to the things you ask her to do to grow your kingdom.   I pray you would call her out to new leadership roles and guide her in every decision she makes.  Father God I pray for us here too, I pray  you would help others to fill the missing places where Kalli has been serving. Lord I pray that she would always hold dear "have faith, give hope, and be love" every day.   Amen

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
