what I want to be when I grow up

On Wednesday night, Kidz Klub had a dress up theme. Dress like what you want to be when you grow up. We had fun gathering stuff for the girls.

K wants to be a 'horse farmer' and a zoo keeper.

She wore jeans and her cowboy boots (old ones of C's that are a perfect fit - right now), her beautiful genuine leather kid's cowboy hat that we picked up for 2 dollars at Goodwill once (it fits her perfectly too) and she rode the stick horse my Mom made her.

C wants to be a writer. She started a novel this past summer and so we made a faux book with the title of her work-in-progress by putting a dust jacket on a hard cover book.

I put her hair in a bun and shoved some pencils into it. She chose to wear one of her favorite shirts which has a tie to go with it. Then we went to Dollar Tree and she picked out some reading glasses (royal blue) and I popped the lenses out for her. Doesn't she look adorable?

For this week's writing assignment, she was to write a three paragraph persuasive essay about why prayer is important, this is what she wrote:

I think that prayer should be an important part of our lives. By prayer the sick have become well. But healing is only one of the numerous things God has done through prayer.

The first thing God does when we pray is healing the hurt. One of my cousins had a hole in his heart. But God answered our prayer and now he is healthy and strong. The Lord also has healed sicknesses through prayer. My aunt had a lung disease. But God answered our plea and healed her. A third reason prayer is important is because the Creator can use it to change lives. On New Years Day, our church had a visit from Teen Challenge and a lot of the people had been alcoholics. But when there family’s prayed, their lives changed because God sent them, to Teen Challenge.

In conclusion, prayer should be one of the most influential things in our lives. When we talk to God, He will heal us and change us and others who need Him.

I am hosting a give-away for my 1001 post on my other blog. If you like to embroider, you might want to check it out.

Super cute pictures! I'm not sure if it's homeschoolers or just that my two girls share a like for wanting to also be writers or zoo keeper vets when they grow up.

Hmm...I wonder if it has to do with all that lovely nature study and wonderful living books. : D
