I am thankful for fish!

Teaching the sunbeams (3 & 4 year-olds) in church has been quite a learning experience for me (and Steven for sure!). I love the cute things they say, the VERY random things they say and do (like chewing on a shoe for instance), and how innocent and teachable these children are.

A couple weeks ago our lesson was about fish. Being thankful for them, to be exact. 

After a lesson on the creation of fish and the story of Jonah and the whale (I draw to get my point across and it helps keep their attention),


We took the kids fishing! Steven fashioned a pole out of a wooden dowel with yarn and a magnet, and the little paper fishies each had a paper clip attached. (Is he not incredibly handsome?)


The kids absolutely LOVED it! they each took a turn catching a fish and would then bring it to me to help them glue it to their fishing bowl.


Some didn't quite get the concept of saying behind the line, but it all worked out.




I love that my nephew is in my class and I get to see him each week :)


Little girls are so perfectly cute!


Yay for fish!



Here's what they looked like after our fishing trip:
