This week, we delved into Persian culture and learned more about the Israelites exile from their homeland. We learned about the Jewish holiday Purim. We read the book of Esther, how God chose her and placed in a position to save the Israelites from destruction at the hands of Naman. We learned how God released Israel from it's exile and they were sent back to Israel from Babylon with blessings to rebuild their temple in Jerusalem.
The kids are both continuing to learn and grow! Kiryn's handwriting is just awesome. And she is really growing in her reading. Luke is finding most of his work pretty easy at this point! : ) Here's a couple of pictures of the kids making a Cyrus scroll!
I don't know why I'm so proud of this handwriting! : )
We wrote "important" messages on the inside of the scroll, then rolled it up and sealed it!
Even scrolls can be girly...
