Lent Week 6!

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey."
Zechariah 9:9
I can't believe we are entering the final week before Easter already! I hope that you all have a blessed Holy Week with your families.
Here a few things we did last week.

An Easter and St. Patrick's Day mural.

We also read about Passover and watched Prince of Egypt and the Ten Commandments. 
This is one of the hymns we have been practicing this year and it is our favorite.
"In Christ Alone"

This is beautiful. You are certainly teaching your children so well about the Good News. Your kids are beautiful, too. Mine are grown. Enjoy them - the time goes by fast!

I'm posting an Easter script we've used with our grown kids and grandkids soon.
Blessings, Dottie
