Lola Molts

We noticed that Lola looked pale which was the sign she was going to shed her skin. Then we watched as she worked hard to pull off her old skin by rubbing it against the rocks and sand. She also tried pulling it off with her mouth. About an hour later, she finally rubbed off the last piece around her face.

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff – including the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then he carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.

 We are learning about ladybugs. Ladybugs go through metamorphosis. Our ladybugs are currently in the larval stage. They have doubled in size since they arrived last Friday.
