“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1
” This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Though the changes that have occurred in the last few weeks have surprised us, they have not surprised the one who created us. Parents may be working from home, dual credit is now online, and co-op has moved online as well. This is an awesome time to practice many of the skills
SKILLS LEARNED THROUGH FOOTBALL:
- Be part of a team – Your family needs to stay healthy and strong. Plan out well-balanced meals and snacks for the entire family. Design a workout program for the family to do together. Share the experience online with other team members.
- Learn to work well with each other – Find ways to be of assistance. Help keep siblings quiet while a parent is on a conference call. Ask how you can help.
- Encourage one another – Cheer for your own family. Find things to praise about each member of your family. Phone or video call older family members and neighbors. Someday soon, we will return to our routines and hopefully will look back at this time as a time of personal growth.
In observance of the recommended stay-at-home proclamation, Spring Camp is on hold. Look in the June MANNA for more details.
