Our volcano is a composite volcano. We are exploding it with vinegar and baking soda, which will be a quiet explosion. We call it Mount Bangellie. We compared it to Mount Lassen. We are including a crater, a vent, a pipe, ash, cinders, bombs, Magma chamber, side vent, hot spring and lava flow. We have an x-ray to represent the stuff on it. It was made out of cheap playdough, a pop bottle, paint cotton balls, flour and cardboard.
I have no idea how God has been preparing me to do work for Him. I know that my mom tells me that I am very patient, I can work hard towards what I want and that I’m very friendly, but besides that I have no idea what God wants to do with that in me. I haven’t had any huge God moments, ya I’ve been baptized, been raised in a Christian family gone to a Christian school and made profession of faith, but what God wants to do with my life, well for one that’s out of my control and two I have no idea. I think that when I really want to do something, I work towards that until I achieve it. I’m not necessarily naturally athletic, but I work at it.
The thing that we did best was the side panels with the X’s. They helped us out and were an essential part to our tower.
What didn’t go well was that our egg holder broke and so we had to turn it over, that mean that the sticky side was up.
My favorite part was working with Abby, Ellie and Tiana. That was lots of fun!
My least favorite part was the stress of not knowing if it would work.
Suzie was a normal babysitter for this family, the Petersons. The Petersons love Suzie and she loved all 10 kids Noah, Emma, Mason, Olivia, Sophia, Jacob, Isabella, Michael, Ava and Ethan. One night Ethan came in and told Suzie his “Teddy” was missing.
“I saw Ava take it,” Ethan said between sobs, “anyway, she says she always wanted one, but I can’t sleep without it.”
“Don’t worry,” said Suzie, “we’ll find it, but in the meantime here is my ‘emergency puppy’ and try to use this to sleep tonight.”
“Ok,” said Ethan, “I can try.”
So that was that and Suzie had to go on a search to find Teddy! First as she had heard from Ethan she went to see if Ava had teddy. She got to her room but she was fast asleep, she didn’t see teddy anywhere but she did notice that Ava had her own stuffed animal and it was a really cute cat.
Suzie checked Olivia’s room next because she knew how much she loved her “stuffies” (what she called her stuffed animals), but teddy was nowhere to be found in her room or bed.
Suzie moved on to the next room. In the hallway she noticed Teddy’s red vest right in front of Noah’s and Jacob’s door. She went inside and Jacob was awake, but he was lying in an awkward position. He looked like he was lying on something and his arm was still underneath him. Also when Suzie talked to him Jacob wouldn’t look Suzie in the eyes.
Suzie asked Jacob, “did you take Teddy?”
“Who is Teddy? Wasn’t he a president? How could I have taken a dead president?” questioned Jacob.
“What are you lying on?” asked Suzie.
“My arm,” said Jacob.
“And what else?” said Suzie.
“Ok, I took Teddy, he’s just so cute I couldn’t resist,” said Jacob.
“May I please have him so I can give him to Ethan?” said Suzie.
“Ok” said Jacob reluctantly handing her the bear.
As Suzie returned to Ethan’s room she put the vest back on Teddy. She went into Ethan’s room and handed Teddy to him. He was so happy, yet so tired that all he did was grab Teddy and hand Suzie “Emergency Puppy”. Then he fell asleep instantly.
What a relief it was to Suzie to know that all the kids were asleep and well.
It is important to know what is going on now days. There is even persecution in the USA. There is persecution all over, and it’s just not cool. People are being martyred and driven out of the places where they live because the believe in the one true living God. We need to at least know about this, and if not, do something.
In bible this week we have been talking about the early church vs. my ideal church. I have noticed that our church is a lot more self centered. I think that we could strive to be more like the early church with sharing what we have and giving more to the poor. I just think that we almost need a new mindset about faith.
