~Hiding God's Word in our Hearts!~

Phillip decided that we as a family would memorize Scripture each month.
If the WHOLE FAMILY could memorize the Scripture passage that he selected for that month (the younger kids memorized less verses than the rest of us) than he would take us all out for Ice cream!
So, of course, the rest of us made SURE that the younger ones memorized their Scripture verses so we ALL could go out for ice cream. :-)
And Phillip faithfully reads over the verses during our morning and evening family devotions to help us memorize the verses easier.
So here we are at the end of February, on our Scripture ice cream trip! :-)
We walked about 15 blocks or so to get to the ice cream shop...but it was worth every step. :-)
~Elijah and Mary with their ice cream.~
 ~Phillip, Noah, Sarah, and Kimberly making their decisions. :-) ~
 ~Argentinians LOVE ice cream.  There is an ice cream shop on nearly every other corner. They make some pretty yummy ice cream here.
The reason we walked 15 blocks, is 'cause this ice cream shop is CHEAPER. :-)
 ~My Cappuccino ice cream.~
 ~Sarah and Mary outside the ice cream shop.~
 ~Kimberly and I outside the ice cream shop.~
 ~I posted this pic of us, for if you look closely to the right of Kimberly's head you can see Phillip still inside the ice cream shop. :-) ~
Now we are working hard to memorize our Scripture for the month of March. :-)

I'm glad you all were able to get your verses learned for this month. It is fun to see you all with your delicious ice cream-especially with Elijah even having it on his nose! Smile. I don't think you'll gain any weight from this treat, since you have to walk so far to get it! You all look beautiful to me! Love, Mom D

Such a neat idea! It is so cold here in Indy that I have not checked my mail in Daddy's unheated office for about three days. We have had snowflakes today. Daddy is busy setting all the seeds to sprout to go out in our garden in about six weeks. Spring seems forever to come here. I love you all, Moma
