"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
II Corinthians 4:18

February 9

We made brownies!
We used the recipe that I learned in 4H back in the 70's
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup melted butter/margerine
2 eggs
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup nuts, or chocolate chips or other candy ( we used M&Ms)

Mix sugar into melted margerine, add eggs, vanilla and then the dry ingredients. You can add the extra goodies in the batter or sprinkle on top. Bake for 25 minutes at 350.

We finished our study on Gladys Aylward. Gladys did many dangerous things in her life, but she always looked to the Lord for her guidance and protection. She is a very good role model for our girls.

We will finish our baking unit February 23. I've changed the lesson plans- we will finish with pizza!

January 26

We made yellow cake from scratch. Was tasty, but the church oven isn't all that great and the bottom burned.

We continued our study of Gladys Aylward. Gladys was determined to spread the good news of Jesus wherever she found herself.
