A House Full of Fourth Graders!

Bryan and I have been teaching fourth grade Sunday School with our friends, Dave & Rachel, for a little over a year now. This semester, we decided to motivate the kids to memorize their verses with an end of year pizza party (and, of course, a chance to play the Wii). So, Rachel and I split the grocery list and sent out the invites. Pretty much everyone said all of their verses and a lot of them were able to make it to the party.

We made homemade pizza. I made the dough from Mrs. McCormick’s sourdough starter and Rachel brought the toppings. We had chips, veggies and dip, and strawberries.

The Fixin's

Suzanna's and Lauren's pizza (wearing our aprons - very nice!)

Justin's & Colin's Pizza (they made it into a bullseye; love the glasses!)

Hailey's Pizza (wearing Miss Rachel's apron)

Jedidiah's pizza

Mr. Bryan's & Darien's Pizza (Darien loves cheese, can you tell?!)

Tons of Pizza Made by 4th Graders and Their Crazy Teachers!

They played MarioKart and SmashBrothers on the Wii, Hide & Go Seek, and Apples to Apples.

Playing Wii

More Wii...

And More Wii (Mr. Dave and Mr. Bryan were the Entertainment Committee)

We have several pianists in the group (which makes Mrs. Rachel happy, since she's a piano teacher). These kids are good too! I was impressed!

And Apples to Apples...we had to discard 1/2 the stack because they didn't know what the words were. Oops! I think I need to buy the Junior edition!

Apples to Apples...they pretty much tied.

And for dessert, Rachel made brownies and I bought ice cream. The kids got to top their sundaes with all kinds of stuff.

Mmm! Brownie Sundaes!

What a great group of kids! We’re really going to miss them next year! We had a great time learning the Names of God this year! Only one more month till they graduate to 5th Grade! Wow! They’ve grown so much this year! We love each of you!

The kids arrived at 11 and were picked up around 2. It was a great time! After the party, we cleaned up and had a nice cup of coffee and chatted. We are so blessed to have been paired with Dave & Rachel this year. They’ve become some of our closest friends! God is so good to us!

  1. This was wonderful ministry to these kids. They will always remember these memories. The Word of God will not return void.
