Remembering God's Promises in Third Grade

THIS is my precious new bunch of third graders. Aren't they quite cute? We are having a great time together! Every day is a new adventure and today was "Rainbow Day"! We've just finished studying about Good Ol' Noah and that crazy ark he built. Turns out it was pretty wise of him to build it since God did indeed do just what He said He was going to do. A hard story... but a fabulous reminder that God is always in control. I like that.

We made rainbow fruit loop necklaces.

And rainbow hats.

And rainbow fruit kabobs....

notice the "ROY G BIV" perfect rainbow order!

We painted rainbow nails (girls only!)...

And rainbow faces.

And we made the most amazing rainbow art project...

... which I will be keeping forever. Isn't it truly amazing? So proud.

And we had this fabulous rainbow cake... courtesy of the Lusk family!

I just soaked up their "ooos" and "ahhhhs" when I cut into it. They were all surprised! How fun!

And then we did this really cool science experiment with Mrs. Tonya Lusk... thank goodness for her enthusiasm for all things science. She likes messy and ooey gooey and so do the kids! (Me... not so much.)

Rainbow Day... what a fabulous way to remember God's everlasting covenant with His people.

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:17
