We just finished a week long Princess/Pirate Summer Camp at preschool. My own boys really enjoyed the week in their own classrooms. For me, it was an especially exciting week because it was my first time back in the classroom after taking two years out of the classroom to be a stay at home mom with my children. I am again reminded of God's faithfulness as I count my blessings for a way to do what I love in a more balanced way! God has opened doors for me to be able to teach part time 3 days a week and continue to stay at home the other two. I am overjoyed with this opportunity.
My own "matey" was called up to sword fight with the pirate. His facial expression in this photo cracks me up!
Aye, Me sword is stuck!
Our class had a wonderful, silly time pretending to be princesses and pirates this week. But, what has touched my heart is that parents have given Ms. Britton and I feedback that their children memorized or really grasped the idea that earthly treasures are not our greatest treasures! As our little ones could tell you, Matthew 6:21 says, "For where your heart is, there your treasure will be also."
I am so thankful to serve a living God who has given me my greatest treasure through the blood of his son Jesus Christ!
