Day 6 of Creation

Day 6 of Creation
Now it was time for the animals that lived on the earth. God made the wild animals and farm animals. He also made the creatures that crawl on the ground. Amphibians, reptiles, mammals, insects, and the birds which do not fly, all creatures of the ground.


Then God said, "Let us make human beings".  God made the first human being from the dust.  The first man was called Adam.  God breathed into Adam the breath of life.

Planting in the Prince of Peace Garden
Our class was invited us to help plant onions in the Prince of Peace Garden.  Farmer Dave Witbrodt taught us about gardening and shared information about the Prince of Peace Garden, that you can see in the front of the church. This year, the garden has harvested over 500 pounds of produce that is shared with St.Trinity Lutheran Church Food Pantry in the Carondelet area.
We learned that you need four things for a plant to grow.
1. Dirt
2. Water
3. Sun
4. Good seeds
Dave showed us the proper way to plant the onion bulbs.  Bottom or round side down and pointy side up.  He also told us that they should also be planted about 2 inches apart.
 Green thumbs up!   We're ready to do this! 

Planting the onions in the trench Farmer Dave had dug and marked out 
in the raised garden bed.

Covering the seeds with dirt.

And, watering them.

We'll be watching them carefully and praying for them as they grow!

Thanks you all for the donations of dental supplies for CCLS-U!
We counted it all up (51 toothbrushes, 21 tubes of toothpaste. and 21 containers of floss), blessed them and prayed for the children at CCLS-U that will receive them.
We also learned a little about CCLS-Uganda as well as how to sing Jesus Loves Me in their language.
Here's a link to watch CCLS-U students sing Jesus Loves You. Watch it with your child and sing along.
