It was another quick day, because we redeemed December’s Pizza Hut Book-It coupons today. Pizza is as motivating as a play date for my girls.

Bible: N and C reviewed their memory verses (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Exodus 20:1-17, Psalm 1:1-6, and Psalm 23:1-5) and the books of the Bible. They began learning Isaiah 53:1-2. They learned about Elijah successfully challenging the prophets of Baal. We talked about the boldness of Elijah’s faith in his challenge and his trash-talking of Baal’s prophets.
