Christmas Party 2009

    christmas 2009 005

Our kids had a great time celebrating Christmas at school.  To begin with, they acted out the Christmas story they had been reciting each morning.  Corey was the narrator,  and each child played a part in their own special way.

Bro. Steve judged the kids on their final round of acting.   Corey and Aaron were the winners of the competition.  Corey, you made a great narrator, and Aaron you played the donkey in such a creative manner.   Good Job, guys.

What a Debate! Should teens be allowed to have Cell Phones?



Well, what a debate they had!  The Pros and Cons did a great job of presenting their opinions about cell phone usage among teens.  However, the pros (the blue team) was chosen by the judges as having the best presentations. 

I thought it was neat when Maddie called her team to prayer before beginning the debate.  Her mom told me that Maddie was nervous.  Aren’t we glad for a Heavenly Father who is concerned about our cares?

Corey did a good job of keeping the debate going.  Ashlyn M. did a great job of keeping time.  She didn’t even have to ring her bell once.  Imagine that!  None of our kids went over their time limit. 

Our lower level kids presented Old McDonald using hand bells.  They did an outstanding job.  Thanks Erica for working with these kids! 

Thanks to all the parents who came to our debate.  Your support means the world to our kids.

PNA students came face to face with this on Wednesday and what a time they had doing it. 


We would like to thank Mr. Brock for allowing us to visit his beautiful animal ranch. 


It was all decorated for fall.  072

He insisted on taking the kids to Burger King to buy their lunch.  He took us back to his beautiful entertainment facility to eat.  What a time the kids had.


He invited the kids to ride with him.  They enjoyed every minute of the ride around his ranch looking at his exotic animals. 


He had the kids be very quiet as he drove near the Capybaras.  Capybaras are the world’s largest rodents.  He started out with 2 and now has about 21. 


What a big rat!  Yikes.
