We've been reading the book, Kon Tiki, to continue with our study of the South Pacific. What a fascinating book! I had been wondering what we should do as a project and came up with making a library of little books. (Using the directions for little books in my favorite, Big Book of Books.) We are making a little book about each of the sea creatures that is mentioned. So far we have done jellyfish and the Gempylus, or Snake Mackerel. Here are TM and D. working away. When we're done, each child will have a little library of little books about sea creatures and I think we'll make a little bookcase for them as well.
Now to the book(s) I am giving away. Do you remember when I read The Hole in our Gospel by Richard Stearns? Well, I think other people should read it as well. In order to make that happen, I am giving away a copy of the book as well a 6-week personal journal, a small group guide and a DVD that goes along with the small group study guide. It would make an ideal Lenten study... and if I were really organized I would have done this last week so the winner could start tomorrow. But I'm not, so whoever wins will have to deal with starting late to make it correspond with Lent.
How do you win? Simply leave a comment on this post. Want a second chance to win? I'll make a place on Ordinary Time's facebook page and you can leave a comment there as well. And to make it fair, for those of you who do not do facebook (because I completely understand the creepiness factor) and want a second entry as well... leave a second comment on this post saying it's your I-don't-do-facebook-but-I-want-a-second-entry-comment. Clear? (As mud?) I'll leave the giveaway open until Thursday so that I can put the book in mail by Friday.
