Emerywood - Thursday

Today there was a chill in the air but the 1st graders were still full of energy as they poured onto the soccer court.  Their play time consisted of learning to stand in line and move with the whistle blasts.  Most of them did well. :)  The 5th and 6th graders had their Olympic games while the 2nd graders got to do crafts and eat Skittles.  The women at the Naomi center learned about breast cancer and the importance of caring for one's health.  There were lots of chuckles as we discussed the ways that God made us uniquely as women.  They enjoyed decorating little black bags and making earrings.  The ladies on the Emerywood team spent the afternoon with the 7th and 8th grade girls.  These young ladies caught between childhood and adulthood needed the extra attention and beamed with the hugs, smiles and conversations directed toward them.  The evening meals in the Ruth School cafeteria are delicious and the Romanian interpreters join us in the fellowship.  They teach us a lot about their country, culture, and language during these times around the table.  It was a great day.
