"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

John 10:10

This morning we were learning about Russia.  Did you know that Rurik was the first Viking to settle in the Russian area?  Vladimir I brought Eastern Orthodoxy to Russia? Ivan the Great built the Kremlin in Moscow?  Ivan the Terrible ended up killing his own son?  Yeah, neither did I until this morning.

To celebrate Russia and learn more about its culture, we had a "Russian" tea party.  Mark spent a month on a mission trip in Ukraine, which used to be part of Russia.  He brought back a milk set as a gift from a family he partnered with there.  It has been sitting in our storage area since we were married.  This morning I pulled it out for Oreos and sweet tea.  

While they were eating, they watched a part of Igor Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" ballet.  

Yes, that is my new Macbook they are watching the ballet on.  Yee haw!
