Jacksonville, FL

Join us for food, fellowship, and a faculty meeting! (See what I did there? Alliteration!) Pam Joudi has graciously offered to host, so we'll meet at her home. Please plan to bring a yummy Mexican dish or dessert to share. After dinner we'll watch the IEW DVDs for units 4-5 to help us prepare to teach in the upcoming weeks!

This is what everyone signed up to bring so far:

Pam- drinks, dessert, paper products

Jen- guacamole, chips

Melissa- cheese, salsa, sour cream

Ashley S.- meat

Britney- rice & black beans, lettuce, tortillas

We could probably use more chips & tortillas, plus any other toppings you might like and/or additional desserts. Ashley C. and Kristine, let me know if you can make it and what you'd like to bring! :)

Final Thoughts...

But the Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?" ... And (then) He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"

- Genesis 3:9, 11

This week, as we work with our children, let us be reminded that God created language ex nihilo, out of nothing, and He did it with perfection. He knew we needed to be able to ask questions because although He knows all the answers, we surely don't! Asking questions is one of the most classical endeavors that exists. It's how we discover the world He created for us, so interrogate to your heart's content! (EEL- page 95)
