Read-Aloud-The Year of Miss Agnes
had a good conversation during read-aloud. Miss Agnes thinks that learning never ends and that adult are learning all the time. Christian said, "well, I'll learn in college". I told him how I'm learning new things all the time. Both kids wanted to know what I'm learning. I told them how I've learned new zumba dances recently, how I learned how to crochet a dishcloth, and that I've learned things about the Holy Spirit through a Bible study I'm doing on the book of Acts.
