The past few weeks have brought us baby chickens, puppy antics, and fudge recipe searching. Yes, spring at the funny farm! The children even found a baby Kildare and brought it in for me to see. I’m thankful the Kildare parents usually take their babies back after our young’ns have all put their scent on them. They are amazingly forgiving birds. Lily, the puppy has made it into the collage because she sat so nicely. She would like you to know she is very nervous and excited about her first show coming up. We’ll make sure to post pictures of the ribbons we are sure her and her daddy, MERLIN, will win!
Things we’ve learned from Star Wars:
- Character Traits – The characters in Star Wars are complex enough to evaluate according to different Character strengths and flaws.
- Cause and Effect – There are consequences for actions in real life. Evaluating the decisions of beloved & despised characters of fiction are an exercise that helps us see where our own personal decisions might take us.
- Practice – Practice in picking out new age and evolutionary themes and ideas. I’ve seen many people raised in the church who don’t recognize non-Biblical worldviews. Practice can help our children develop a strong foundation and logical reasoning for our beliefs.
