Yep. I’m still talking about it and haven’t done it yet, but NEXT week I am going to start with the whole memorize and teach scripture to my kids resolution for 2013.
I was wondering if you want to join me? I am going to get some chalkboard paint this weekend and find a good spot to paint that is visible and accessible to my kids. That way we can all see the verse we’re memorizing every time we see it and it will remind me to continue saying it to them out loud throughout the week.
I’ve been wanting to paint our super old fridge with chalkboard paint for a while now like this one from The Handmade Home.
Isn’t that cute? But that would mean I would need to get permission from the Mr. to paint our kitchen cabinets to balance out all that blackness on the fridge.
I’m wearin’ him down, girls. I think he’s about to cave!
In the meantime, back to memorizing scripture. I am thinking about these two places in the pic below. Under the counter or, like I said, the fridge.
So, yeah. I will just write out the verse we’re memorizing weekly and this can also serve as a fun place for the kids to draw with
and eat chalk.
So, if you’re in, be thinking about a good place for you to paint a bit of chalkboard paint in your house to help in the memorizing scripture challenge. You can always paint over it when you have the whole Bible memorized. But you will probably be dead before that happens, so don’t worry too much about that.
Are you so encouraged, yet?
In other news, Daddy is takin’ up hockey again, so we all went to his first game the other night.
Jada’s got the cheer hands/jazz hands down. (Is it called jazz hands in cheerleading, Toni? My friend Toni was a pro cheerleader. I’ll find out what the correct cheer hand term is from her).
And JimJim got his skates, helmet and stick and was hopin’ to get out there on the ice with the big boys.
But, he ended up just playin’ a pick up game with his imaginary teammates on the sidelines.
Let me know if you’re joinin’ me in the Bible verse chalkboard paint challenge and where you will be painting your section of chalkboard paint, and if you’re husband hates me because of it!
And in the next couple of weeks I’m looking forward to starting some more room reno projects again!
Have a great weekend, all!
