15 Fantastic Verses to Memorize as a Family {Matthew 28:6}

Oh, friends... Happy, happy Easter!!!  He is risen!

How did you spend your Easter today?  All week, Little Man and I have been digging into Holy Week.  I must say, it has brought a new level of emotion and appreciation to this Easter weekend.  As we went through an hour-by-hour timeline on Good Friday, I felt a sense of emotion that I've never felt before.  That will definitely be something we do every year from now on!  

Tonight, as our celebration comes to a close, I have one last treat for my boys... Resurrection Rolls!  We've never made them before, and I'm so excited to see their faces!

Here is a memory verse for you this week!  Click the picture to go to a Google Doc.  Just print and go!  I hope this verse reminds you daily that our Lord and Savior is alive in us!  Let His light shine!

10 Favorite Stories for St. Patrick's Day {What We're Reading Wednesday}

Spring is here!  Can you believe it?  Here in Texas it was a STRANGE winter!  And Spring just makes me happy (almost as happy as Fall makes me)!  Pastel colors, fun themes for the little ones, Spring Cleaning, an overall feeling of newness and fresh starts.  Love it all...

Today I'm thrilled to share 10 favorite books for St. Patrick's Day!  These are the books we'll be reading next week during our morning storytime.  Stay tuned for some extension activities!

I try not to play favorites when it comes to books.  However, this series is definitely a favorite.  We may or may not read the Christmas version all year.  Little Man would read the Halloween version daily if I let him.

This is one of my favorite series for alphabet books.  Little Man has recently gotten into the non-fiction part of it.  Love it!

Have you read any of these?  What are your favorite books for St. Patrick's Day?

And now for a peek into what we're reading individually this week ....

Little Man is currently reading Matilda.  He actually watched the movie first.  We're just starting some of the longer chapter books at night, so it worked out well for him to see the movie before reading.  Every now and then he'll pop up with a "Hey, I remember that part!" or a "That's not how that happened!"  I love seeing him make those connections.  

I've been reading Mere Christianity.  I'm about halfway through and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book!  I'm actually sad I borrowed it from the library instead of buying it.  I would have marked it up and highlighted every other line!  I actually get hand cramps from writing so many quotes in my notebook at night!  Seriously fantastic stuff right here!

What are you reading this week?
