CELP - Catalina Environmental Leadership Program. This is Carly with Marguerite, our camp counselor.

We just returned from 3 days in Catalina where we snorkeled, kayaked, learned about organic gardening and composting, hiked, and challenged ourselves on the climbing wall. We loved it!

Check CELP out for yourself.

St. Patrick's Day

Today's after school snack was Shamrock Toasties: english muffin, melted cheddar cheese and spinach leaves shaped like a 4-leaf clover. A big hit!

In honor of St. Pat here's an Irish proverb sent to me from a dear friend:

May love and laughter light your days and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons bring the best to you and yours!

Sing My Love

Yesterday when we sang this song at church I could hear the Lord tell me I'm lovely. I could feel the Lord touch me and burn His love into my soul. It was beautiful. I felt like I had never heard the song before.

Sing My Love
by Sarah McMillan

Words can never say the way he says my name
He calls me lovely
No one every sees the way he looks at me
He sees me holy
Words can never hold this love that burns my soul
Heaven holds me
Oh, heaven holds me

Can't hold my love back from you
Can't hold my love back from you
I've gotta sing
I've gotta sing
Sing my love
To you Jesus yeah

(Verse 2)
You will not believe the way he touches me
He burns right through me
I could not forget every word he said
He always knew me
The earth could never hold this love that burns my soul
Heaven holds me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, heaven holds me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


(Verse 2)

Oh, nothing's gonna stand in the way
Nothing can get in the way of the love tonight

Principal For The Day

Students at my children's school earn Taft Tiger tickets by showing respect, making good decisions, and solving problems. The more tickets earned the bigger and better the reward. Cooper earned 100 Taft Tiger tickets and got to be principal for the day! He had so much fun making announcements in the classrooms and working with Principal Coe. We are proud of you, Cooper!
