It just so happens…

In our school lessons this year we have been searching scripture for the different names of Jesus. Last month one of the names we focused on was “The Rock.” Our memory verse for 2 weeks was…

Matthew 7:24… “"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”

Our science lessons were focusing on “What the Earth is made of…”. So we have been reading about, doing different activities with and looking at pictures  of the different layers of the earth…

Soooo it was a pretty awesome “coincidence” that my engineer of a hubby came home with the info (I really mean ALL the info… he was pretty into it) about this.

The LACMA is moving a 340-ton piece of granite from Riverside, CA to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and it is quite an impressive feat. They move it at night and have designated a route specifically able to withstand both the weight and width of this piece of earth.  There are workers that are actually walking with it the entire route. Pretty impressive!

And so because, my Josh is… well… who he is… and because he does what he does… this sparked his keen interest and it became a MUST on our field trip list.  I love that, truly…  it just so happened that we had been all into rocks lately (in several senses of the word) and here we have MOTHER of rocks driving by our house! (not really right by our house… but close… you know what I mean. )

Anyways…. all in all…I’d say it was pretty ROCKIN!
