Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Emily. Tonight was Valentine cookie night. We made sugar cookies and frosted them Valentine colors and put little candy bears on them. Emily was in her element.
We also started a new book tonight: God's Names by Sally Michael from the Desiring God ministry of Bethlehem Baptist Church. I read through it a few months ago and really liked it. It teaches about God and his character and nature by teaching through various names of God. I look forward to working through this book with the kids. Tonight we read the introduction.
As usual, a fun time was had by all!
P.S. A Cookie Baking Night alumni stopped over this evening. Joe (Emily's brother) came to pick up Emily at the end of the evening. He's 20 years old now, and it appears he's still growing (he's a little taller every time I see him, 6'3" now, but he's hoping for 6'5"--better jump shot he said).
It was good to see him and catch up with him a bit and to be reminded that this time with the young ones goes by so fast. All the more reason to love them, enjoy the time with them, and teach them the things of God (for so very soon they'll be driving cars and working at jobs--and Cookie Baking Night is just a memory).
