Unit study-Day 1
Yesterday we spent time reviewing the history of Ash Wednesday. We took time to appreciate what is being represented on this special day. From our understanding, you are supposed to dry palm branches from the year before and burn them to create the ashes, since we did not have this we chose to burn incense and and use those ashes! This is turning out to be a project that includes loads of history, bible, art and even language-since there is lots of writing to be done! Miss Mikala is doing fantastic with the writing and keeping up pretty well with her big brother and sister!! Pictures tomorrow!
