Tuesday and It's Persimmon and Onion Jam
It was a day of lost and found! Here, Aunt Opal, Annie, and Uncle Zeke comfort T.C., who has lost his chick, Henrietta.
But, Annie finds Henrietta and T.C. is joyful.
Of course, Uncle Zeke had found a 'tater that looked like one of the Seven Dwarves . . . Sleepy!
Yesterday, "Judge" told a story about the unexpected love of Jesus, using this magic trick about an unexpected red block:
Today, he drew two stories Jesus told about the joy someone has who looks for something that is lost and finds it.
Our 5th and 6th graders continued cutting out fleece for their muppet creations. Much work yet to do!

Things got pretty wet, as you can see by Lilly Bob's response . . . . (Eb's joy is just a little bit over the top, don't you think?)
And here is the younger group in a corn-shucking relay. Many had never shucked an ear of corn before. So, moms, don't hold back next time you have corn on the cob, your kids have been trained by a professional--Peaches.
Before the day ended, we sang a raucous, bell-accompanied version of "Ahalelujah." Look at the concentration on those faces. The players were great.
And today's snack was fruit pops. Behold the pop clatch below:
