The Letter B

This is what we've done for the letter B...
  • Read Old Bob's Brown Bear (over and over and over and over)

  • Memorized a "B" verse 
     Blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it.
    Luke 11:28b

  • Found objects around the house/garden that start with B
  • Added "B" to our laminated flip book of letters & words, along with new words we can read (BAG, BAT, BUG, TUB, CUB, CAB, COB, BOB, BUT)
  • Decorated a letter B with beans
  • Read a Buffalo Poem from our favourite Alphabet Book (It has an animal, poem and recipe for every letter of the alphabet.)

I was reminded of this today, and had to go search the MySpace archives to find it! Thought I would share it here...

From July 2, 2008:

I read this yesterday, through my tears, and I just had to share. I couldn't believe how much I related, and with the freshness of visiting an orphanage....

The Tear Collector

And today we were at another orphanage! My heart just broke for those children. And then I walked into a room full of babies, cribs lining all the walls. The first baby I saw was a tiny new baby that had been abandoned. She was so precious and innocent that my heart melted! So in need of a mother. I could hardly hold back the tears. She had only been there for days and was assumed to be a couple weeks old. As I write this, I still want to go back and get her and bring her home with me. As I held her, she yawned and put her tiny fingers in her mouth to suckle. Lord, I know you love her and have a plan for her life. Please allow her the opportunity to know the love of a mother and a family, and through that love, see You!
