Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Orphanage Talk

This morning after Language Arts we were transitioning to another subject.  Sarah stepped behind me and started to massage my head.... Ahh that felt sooo good!
Then Erika said, "I used to get candy for massaging the orphanage ladies' heads"..... "I put one of them to sleep!" 
Then Alli said, "Our worker had us pick out  all her gray hairs because she didn't want any."  "It was really gross!"  
The things I learn in school!

Please explain to me the "Language Arts" :)

Language Arts is studying the Art of how to speak English.
It is basic nouns, verbs, adverbs, predicates, subject, prepositional phrases, etc.etc.
But they also teach diagramming sentences. (taking them apart and putting each part of speech spoken into a diagram)
It teaches poetry and creative writing, poetry, spelling and punctuation.
