THIS week, we started on RUSSIA; and, we are also focusing some of our time on Easter (Resurrection Sunday). We are going through the "resurrection eggs," reading stories of Easter, drawing pictures, and watching music videos - all to help us focus on the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord. Here are a couple of the pictures the kids drew. (We have been discussing how the signs of Spring, bunnies, and eggs are all symbols of new life - just like the new life we have when we have faith in Jesus.)
