We've been enjoying studying the human body this year. We're loosely following Guest Hollow's Curriculum. One of the fun kits we ordered was the Magic Schoolbus - Journey Into the Human Body. Today we built our own stethoscope using some tubing, a funnel and a balloon. The amazing thing is that it really worked! I could not believe how loudly and clearly we could hear the heart beat. Then the kids jumped up and down for awhile to get their heart racing and listened to it slowly get back to a resting pace. We're really enjoying this kit.
I love butterflies! Their surprise appearances in our urban environment fill my heart with sweet and sudden joy...just like catching glimpses of our Savior's glory. I don’t want to miss His splendor and magnificence and power in the unexpected places… in the midst of daily living.
He’s teaching me to watch for sneak peeks of Him throughout the day…His hand at work…His beauty displayed…His peace that calms…His power that moves…His touch that heals.
I’m a homeschooling mom of 7 in the heart of the city, married to an urban church planter and just a regular girl following an astounding King. Thanks for joining me in my blog as I watch in anticipation for butterflies in the city and glimpses of His glory.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give us a Spirit of unity among ourselves so that with one heart and mouth we may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5~6
