Our fall activities have started. I attend a Coffee Break Bible study on Tuesday morning and Joash has moved up to Story Hour. We have now entered the time of crafts to take home. "Clear the refrigerator." said Wilbert. I was nervous for this transition because he did so well in the nursery he was in last year. He loved the ladies that took care of him because they brought tractors for him to play with. But Story Hour went well with just a few tears.
Then on Sunday Joash started to go to Junior Sunday School. This means he sits in church with us for the first half of the service, then goes to the front of church for the Children's Message and then heads downstairs for Sunday School. He did really well with this one. He was pretty quiet during church, sat in the front nicely and stayed in Sunday School without tears.It helps that he is in the same room at church for both of these activities.
But my favourite thing about all of this is hearing him talk about the Bible story that he hears a bit. He loves stories and so far he has always been able to tell what the story is about. And that makes this mom happy to know that her son is paying attention to what is happening and learning about God at the same time.
The other "first" happened today as we started chopping our first corn silage ever. Joash got to spend all morning in the tractor and he loved it! I did to because it meant I could get groceries and run other errands with only one child! I am sure there will be more on the corn and corn silage process later on in the week. I think they have to finish up tomorrow since is started raining this afternoon, so hopefully it will be finished tomorrow.
