A little bit of Lawson

Jon's parent's kept our kids in Oklahoma while we went to Honduras at the beginning of June. A couple months before we came Jon's mom told me that if I worked with Lawson and he learned his books of the Bible he could recite them for Ms. Loretta, who has been teaching the 4-5 year old class for years. If he could recite them all he would earn a certificate, but more importantly to him, she would bake him a cookie cake with his name on it.

I started one morning to say them, planning on having him repeat them to me...but he just started saying them with me! I didn't even know it, but his Wednesday night Bible class teachers had been teaching them all quarter! He was already able to get to about Jeremiah before I even knew he was learning them!

Anyways, we kept working on them and when he was in Oklahoma he did a great job reciting them in class. I wanted to share these pictures of that day, along with a video memory I made so I can have him saying all 66 books at 4 1/2. I want to say a huge thanks to Ms. Margy and Ms. Neila who first started teaching him to recite them! Also, thanks to Ms. Loretta for making this accomplishment so special to Lawson!

That is incredible!!! And he pronounces them all so perfectly, up until 'rebalations' that is. :) Tell Lawson that I am so so so proud of him!
