Here’s the latest from our classmate Finnian about his move west.
“Right now we are living in our camper as we wait for our house to close. My school will only be 5 mins away from our new home, which is fantastic! We toured my new school Tuesday, and I am looking forward to starting. It was such a long adventure traveling across the country (61 hours). We did stop at the OH Caverns, Mt Rushmore, and the Dinosaurs Museum in WY. We have also stated exploring this area. Craters of the Moon was soooo hot but worth it. Thank you for the prayers.”
Cheesy Boy wanted to share this news with all of his friends and their families. We hope he will continue to blog from Idaho so that we can join in his adventures there and learn more about the West.

Yellowstone joke back at you, Cheesy Boy:
What did the dad say after dropping his son off at Yellowstone National Park?
Hudson finally was able to spend time with Eliano, his friend from Rhode Island. They had not seen each other in two years!
We have begun our yearlong study of The Young Peacemaker by Corlette Sande. We are memorizing scripture, examining principles, and role playing real life situations to grow in our peacemaking skills.
Here we are exploring the idea of conflict using Twangled.
On our last day together as a class, we celebrate Remembrance Day. Like the Israelites stacked up stones to remind themselves of the great things God had done, we spend the whole day remembering God’s goodness to us as a class through team activities, games that include snippets of our yearlong learning, revisiting some of our favorite things, a divine tea party created and hosted by Mrs. Shedd, and revealing our Forty Book Challenge total for the year. What a day!
Celebrating another step in life, possibilities, growth, the excitement of what’s ahead, . . . .
I challenge you not to laugh as you look at this series of attempts to get a good shot. Do you think we are excited about new friendships, learning together, and the joy of creating classroom community? Huzzah!
We love so many things about Mrs. Shedd, but one of our favorite things about her is the way she delights in having lunch with us. This week we enjoyed the company of the sixth graders at the Mrs. Shedd Manners Lunch. Oh, how we miss getting to see these sixth graders every day like we did in the “good old days”!
