Running, ECC Week 3, Day 4

Happy Birthday! To my dad that is =) He turns a whopping 67 years old today. And to celebrate he is having a play day with my kiddos. My oldest and him just got done with a very animated game of Yahtzee. They are currently adding up the scores to see who won. Grandpa got a Yahtzee (whoppee!!!) so I am thinking he's got a good chance of going home with the bragging rights. *update: they just added up the scores and she beat him by 12 points. Way to go, Savannah!

Running: I ran 3.61 this morning. It was very humid out at 6:30 this morning so I took it a bit slow. BUT I still got the miles under my belt, so I'm a happy camper. Or runner, rather.

ECC Week 3 Day 4

We were to make bookmarks that say 'Matthew' in Greek, given that was the language it was orginally written in and that is the book we are mainly focusing on this year. So they wrote Matthew in Greek....and then we thought it would be fun to see what THEIR names were in Greek. So we went here to find out and they wrote their names in Greek on the backs of the bookmarks, as they are showing below...

Then Savannah (my oldest, age 9.5) thought it would be fun and oh so funny to write Daddy a letter in Greek. It says 'Dear Daddy, I love you, PS Grandpa came today, it is his birthday....xoxo Savannah'

Here she is gathering all the words she needs for the letter....
