Just a reminder, for parents of our kids in the grade 4-6 class (that normally meets in the Scott Room), for the next few weeks our class will be held downstairs in the Rose Room and the craft room (in the same hall as the kitchen) as the Scott Room undergoes some renovations.
Our Just A Thought for today is a lovely family activity to prepare for Easter.

Just a Thought
Today's thought is a tutorial by Ann Voskamp on how to make an Easter Grace Garden (annvoskamp.com/2012/03/a-family-christian-activity-for-easter-make-a-grace-garden-a-visual-parable/) . It's a lovely idea, that allows you to get your hands dirty (literally) and make a wonderful visual reminder of the story of Easter. You put it together ahead of time, and then during Holy Week (from Palm Sunday onwards) there are a few activities to do, including planting seeds, lighting candles, and making a butterfly. It looks like a great idea to get a real sense of the meaning behind Easter and Holy Week. I'd love to see pictures if anyone makes one.
Back there in the beginning, we all fell in a garden. And Christ, He falls to the ground in the garden of Gethsemane. And He begins to right our fall. So the kids and I, we put our hands into dirt, and we remember our garden fall and His garden grace, and we make a Grace Garden for Easter.
