I've had Breakout quite a few times, and have it two more times coming up. This is my discipleship group of kids I lead a few times a month. Last week we talked about a life of Joy, and how joy is not dependent on our circumstances! I also used the quote "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!" to teach the kids how God can take the sour, icky things of life, and always makes something good from it. We then squeezed and squeezed lemons, added some sugar and water, and made delicious lemonade! The best part? The kids GOT IT. :) The Tulsa Opera came to our school today to perform Hansel and Gretel. What a treat! :) The kids got to yell "Bravo" when they saw something they liked. It was too cute to hear kids yelling (with all they had) "Bravo" and clapping for a bit of culture.
5 weeks of school left, and then I'm a 4th year teacher! :)
