The fifth and sixth grade finished a history unit on medieval times and invited the elementary to join them in a medieval celebration. Seventeen pint-sized lords, ladies, knights, princesses, jesters along with the king and queen could be seen parading through the halls of GLCA. A grand time was had by all!
The princes, princesses, and knights of the 3rd and 4th region of the kingdom
Our brave men ready to defend our land!
Pretty princesses :-)
The king and queen hosting the feast.
The court jester entertaining the crowd :-)
The kids really enjoyed themselves throughout the whole day. It was fun to watch at recess as knights dualed each other on the playground and the fair ladies daintily held their skirts so as not to get them dirty!
Where did the blog name come from? While listening to the radio, I heard Dr. Tony Evans use an illustration about high jumpers and pole vaulters. Olympic high jumpers set records clearing 9 feet, while Olympic pole vaulters set records of over 19 feet. Why the drastic difference? The high jumper is doing the best he can with what he has in his own strength; the pole vaulter is also doing the best he can but is leaning on something else to accomplish the otherwise impossible feat! Dr. Evans drew a parallel to the Christian walk. What could we accomplish if we would fully lean on the Lord rather than our own strength? It brings new meaning to Prov. 3:5-6!
