I simply want everything I do to be an act of worship to God. ********************EVERYTHING******************** like a spider's web, intricately woven, the threads of our lives are entwined, making us who we are, where we are, at this time in history.... here's a small record of one family's journey to love God

published!

For those of you who have asked, and for anyone else who might want to take a nosey, the children's accounts of The Science Competition can be found here.

I must admit, what the older two were going to do was deemed unacceptable my their publisher!
Actually they only got as far as the first sentence
"These two photos show...."
and I said,
"Hey guys you can do *more interesting* than that".

I gave them a sentence starter:
After many years of weather watching......
and they were away.

When they were done we went back and I enquired,
"do you think there's a more interesting way to write "very good"?
how else could you describe those games?".....
and so "very good" became "most professional"............
and so on.

They really jumped on board with trying to write in an interesting style - this is a first, and so worthy of note! And it turned out a little differently to their usual scratchings!

Hmmm....interesting! (LOL)
Great point, might take the cue myself and ask "can I/how can I make this more interesting" - especially good reminder for using with the kids.

Didn't you know, they'll be getting a Most Distinguished Prize for their Contribution to Literature next;-)

(actually I only thought it fair to make mention of the fact that I had helped them, seeing as *I Helped Them*!)
