Flannel-board fun!

A couple of months ago, I fell in love with the idea of making my boys a flannel board. So I bought a cork board at the store and glued/tacked a piece of blue flannel down. I love how simple it looks and the kids have enjoyed putting different shapes up and playing with the felt!

It has been so sweet to see them take to the Resurrection scene that I hastily cut out for our Easter learning day earlier this week. Even Treyton was mesmerized today.

I think I'll cut out some little stick people and crosses and let them tell me the story!

Growing up, we had a Resurrection set, similar to a Nativity set. It was made out of of 3-d paper dolls. I remember spending hours in front of that set moving the players in the the biggest event in history. I remember my heart being so moved as I physically moved these "dolls" through the steps leading to the crucifixion and than re-living the glories of His Resurrection!

My greatest hope in this life is that God would call my boys to a deep and wonderful relationship with Him. What a privilege it is to be their mother and watch this unfold.

My prayer this week has been for this revelation to shake my family to the very core. That we might stand in awe at what Jesus went through on our behalf. I am thankful that because of HIM, I am a child of God, both now and forevermore!
