Sunday School 8

Greeting: Greet each child as they come in the door. Make sure they have nametags, and the parent ahs signed them on the sheet.

Opening:   Sign of the Cross, Our Father Prayer.

Development:ART (Ask children what they see, there are no wrong answers)

Scripture: The bible tells us that Jesus had a special love for children. When Jesus grew up he often talked to crowds of people about God’s love for them. The people often brought their children along. Jesus welcomed the children with a smile, spoke to them, and showed his love for children by laying his hands on their heads and blessing them. (Cf. Mt 19:13-15)

Saint: Jerome was one of the most popular Saints represented in art.  Many images have him on his knees in the desert praying. He is also famous for his healing touch that he gave to a lion.  As he saw the lion roaring in pain he so believed in the lord that he advanced on the lion. He grabbed the lion by the paw and removed the thorn from his paw. , And he secured a lasting friend and admirer. Perhaps they found they had much in common? St. Jerome tamed the lion, and the love of God tamed St. Jerome.

Story: Jesus and the little children (Catholic Picture Bible 165)

Activity:  Textured collage bring different textures soft, sandpaper, satin, net, bottle caps, sand, cotton balls, buttons, ribbons, yarn, paper clips, and rubber bands.

Before you begin the craft make sure you have all the newspapers spread out to limit the mess, and have the T-shirts is line ready before the children are near the shirts.

Making handprints on shirts. You will need to write…The name of their Sunday School before they get started. One suggestion is while the children are with the teacher the assistants can write on the T-shirts.

Coloring sheet for those that finish early…

Its a Small World

It’s a world of laughter

A world of tears

And a world of fears

There’s so much that we share

That it’s time we’re aware

And one golden sun

And a smile means

Friendship to ev’ryone

Though the mountains divide

And the oceans are wide

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small world after all

It’s a small, small world

Fall Recipe To Share

I used to make this with my niece when she was young.
3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed (I freeze mine, as soon as they turn brown, pop them in the freezer bag, and then in the freezer.
1/3 cup olive oil
3/4 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup of blueberries (if you like the extra fruit, roll the berries in some honey to sweeten them)
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Walnuts cut in small pieces.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

With a spoon, mix olive oil with the smashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.
add in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
next add in the dry ingredients with the  flour last.  Lightly stir in the blueberries if opted. Don’t over stir!!!!
Slam the pan on the counter a couple of times to even the batter. Add the walnuts on top of the batter. The walnuts are just another option that can be added or edited.
Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour.
Cool on a rack.
Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Ahh, the smell of it…FALL!

Fall Memories

October is one of the best months in the SF Bay Area. There is not as much fog, and it is warmer than the summer at this time. It may be no surprise that this makes Halloween that much more exciting. The best aspect of October is seeing my children year after year dressing up for Halloween. Every year, I have just loved the costumes that they choose. Around here it doesn’t even matter your age. High School age kids come knocking at our door. This year I have not heard my 8th grader ask for a costume, but everyone at the school they attend dress up for Halloween. So, we will see. Here is a look at some of my favorites. 

Here is my baby. This is when she was three.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next year…OMG! The years go by so quickly!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One more…I know there are so many blogs to see, so this is the last. I just love Halloween!!! 

Fall At Terreni D’ Oro

Usually, on Tuesdays I write about tech toys, apps, etc. Today, and the rest of the week I am joining SITSGIRLS  Blog Challenge.

We are writing all about FALL today. Showing a photograph or telling a story.

I am from the midwest…I lived in the city. We had trees that lined the block. In the fall the leaves would change various warm hues. The smell in the air was crisp and the sound matched the feeling. Leaving falling as we walked to school. Kicking huge bundles of leaves as we drank our beverage that we took to school that day. Waiting around the corner to ambush a friend with an armful of leaves.

The anticipation to get home every afternoon was so great. I couldn’t wait to have a hot beverage and just enjoy the moment of swinging on the porch.

I moved to SF, almost 16 years ago, and now I am moving to my own ranch. Well, it is our family ranch. I will be surrounded by animals. Wild ones…snakes, tarantulas, and mountain lions…oh my!

 

The weather out here is much different. It is warm most of the time, and soon we will learn about the cold on the central coast.

Mark Pettit/You have Something Up Your Butt!

Images of Venice stir my soul. There is something so seductive about that place. It may be the mystery that lurks in the shadows of my mind. It may be the romantic heart that pounds with desire. It may be that this was the place that women explored their intellent only if they were a courtesan or a nun. Such drastic divisions…either a sinner or a savior or souls were allowed books.

The first time I saw a painting by Mark Pettit I had to have one. His painting almost come to life right in front of your eyes. There is a dream like quality about them, one could almost step inside the painting and join. I have only two of his paintings. The one below caught my eye, and I had to grab it fast. His show sell out very quickly, so a decisive mind is a must. One does not have the luxury of waiting a day to decide. I did that once with his painting, and the painting was gone the next day.

Upon gazing at the painting the viewer becomes immersed in the bouncing waves. Smelling the flowers, and hearing the sounds of the cloth of the blind billowing in the wind. The sound of the waves continually lapping the building, and the sound of the gondolas hitting on another in a rhythm that one does not forget. 

Alright, for additional fun I wanted to be part of the Sits-girls challenge.

My best friend and I were familiar with the Principals office. It seemed as though we often got called to the office. One very memorable time was when we decide to take longer to get to the Principals office. My best friend was more daring than I was back then. She said “lets slide down the banisters.” I was too scared. It was three flights…just typing this makes my hands sweat. She took off…swoosh…down the first one. It looked like so much fun! She mounted the next one. She screamed! I ran down the steps. She was holding her butt. “What is wrong?”  She would not take her hand off her butt. “Let me see, let me see!” I said to her. She uncovered her butt, and there was a huge splinter right through her pants. I told her “You have a stick up your butt!” She was not amused! She told me “pull it out!”  I told her to cover her mouth. She covered her mouth with both hands. I pulled out the stick, and she screamed. I told her we better get her to the nurse, and skip the Principals office. We went to the nurse, and when we told her she laughed as she looked at the bum of my friend. She got a band-aid on her butt, and a memory to last a lifetime. She never slid down another rail again that I know of after that time.

Sunday School 7

Greeting: Greet each child as they come in the door. Make sure they have nametags, and the parent ahs signed them on the sheet.

Opening:   Sign of the Cross, Our Father,

Development: ART 

Scripture: The Bible tells us that when Jesus grew up he often talked to crowds of people. One day, two blind men in the crowd asked Jesus for help. Jesus asked them “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind men answered, “please help us to see.” Then Jesus touched their eyes and they were able to see. The two men said thank you to Jesus and became friends. (Cf. Mt 20:29-34)

Saint: Lucy comes from Latin (lux), meaning light. But light in the Middle Ages had its primary connection with the eyes. It is the eyes that give us access to the material world, as we can see only in the light. People could only see in the daylight or by the light of a fire. People in the Middle Ages were also very conscious that there were two kinds of light, spiritual and physical, and that two are connected. Although Lucy could not see she saw something more. (Have the children close their eyes, and ask what they see.

Story: Story of Saul (pg. 364 Treasury of Stories)/

Saul was the son of Kish. He was tall, handsome and well built. From his shoulders upward, he was bigger than any of his people.One day the donkeys of Kish strayed away and were lost. Kish said to his son, “Take one of the servants with you and go find the donkeys.” They searched and searched through the countryside but could not find the donkeys.

Saul began to think of returning home because they had been away for a long time, and he feared that his father would be anxious for their safety. The servant suggested that they go to see a wise man who lived in a city near by and who had foretold many things which had come to pass. Together they went to the city and they met some maidens who told them that a sacrifice was being made that day and that the prophet, whose name was Samuel, would be there to bless it.

The Lord had told Samuel that he would send him a man from the land of Benjamin to be the captain and king of all the people of Israel. When Saul appeared, Samuel pointed him out and said to the assembled people, “There is the man.”

Saul said to Samuel, “Come up with me to the high place. You shall eat with me today, and tomorrow I will let you go and you shall tell me everything that is in your heart. As for the donkeys they were found three days ago.”

Saul was puzzled because he could not understand the honor that was being bestowed upon him, but Samuel gave him no chance to protest. He took Saul and his servant to the feast, and gave Saul the choicest portion to eat.

The next morning Samuel anointed Saul, and led him before all the people and proclaimed him the new king. Saul tried to hide, but as he stood head and shoulders above all the other people, it was easy to see him. The people shouted for their King of Israel.

McPhee’s Grill

We have visited twice so far. We have made plans to make this a place to meet our friends on Friday evenings. The outside of the Grill doesn’t give the impression of an upscale feel, but once inside that perception has changed immediately.

The people are warm and inviting. The ambiance is filled with whimsy. There are pigs, lots of pigs. Giving more of a provincial feel, the upscale pigs that are going to be on your plate. The seating was comfortable, and there is more room inside than meets the eye. My coffee was topped off just the right amount of times. I don’t like to be constantly asked about my coffee, or even when I still have so much in the cup.

We did not have to wait an extraordinary amount of time for our food. Everyone else likes beef, so they had burgers with fries. Everyone liked their burgers and fries, and the fries got very high marks. Everyone talked about how super yummy they were. I had a few of them, and I must agree. Those fries were delicious!

Pizza was the my dish of choice. I also had the Caesar Salad. Both were really good. The dressing for the salad was creamy and tasty. The greens were very fresh and crunchy.

My daughter and I shared the dessert of Cheesecake with rasberry sauce. OH SO HEAVENLY! Really, it was worth stuffing myself to have the cheesecake. It was rich and decadent! You must go…although we did not have to make reservations, I understand that sometimes calling ahead is a good idea. Make sure you get a table and call them.

Eat well my friends!

George Leonard Lewis Franklin Fizer

George was born in August 27th 1889 in Putnam County, West Virginia. His parents were James Preston and his mother was Mariah Gordon Persinger.

 

When George was 10 he was living with his grandmother and grandfather. Peter and Margret had many people living under one roof. Ten people living under one roof, ranging in ages from 78 to 3. They lived in the Curry District.

He was married at the age of 18 to Minerva Jane Snodgrass. His brother married the sister of Minerva on the very same day.

When he was 28 he states on his draft card that he was a mater man. I have no idea what occupation that is. He was employed by Christfam Callies Co. The company was in Madam, WV. He had gray eyes and black hair. His complexion was listed as ruddy.

By the time he is drafted to WWII he has a crippled left leg. He is 6 feet tall, and only weights in at 148lbs.

He died in 1963. He is listed as a miner at some time in his life.

I hope to know more about him, and maybe a photo.

 

Kids and Computer

When my children were preschoolers they were playing games on the computer. These days there are so many more apps, and even sites for children to visit. The question is… are they safe? Well, first off, you have to keep an eye on your children and research the places you allow them to go on the internet.

Enchanted learning has always been a favorite of mine for the children. Cosmeo is another one. Mathletics is one the kids still use.

Our children have Mac’s, and we limit what sites they are allowed to access. When I do updates to their computers I check their history and find out what kind of sites they have tried to access. I believe the best policy is be honest with your children. Just as reality, there are good people and bad people. On the internet we don’t know what the people look like, what they do, or anything. Someone can pretend to something or someone they are not. Don’t regard information on the web as factual.

When they are very young games limited to 20 to 30 minutes are good. Once they get older you will want them to have freedom, but also be honest. Let them know they are not allowed to post their address, photos of the outside of their home, the school they attend.

Even though my children are now teenagers I don’t allow them to have Facebook. The children are around their friends enough at school, and then to come home and do homework with Facebook lurking in the background. No thanks! I think it may be even worse for girls. So much drama over NO thing. The children are allowed to email their friends, and have phone calls.

How do you handle computers and children?

 

Too Big

Wondering why she thinks she fits…
