Morgan Minute: Transit

Morgan Minute Y15 02 from Adam Morgan on Vimeo.

IMG_4495It is a sad reality here in the city. So many here feel empty inside. Their hope has gone from their lives and many choose to escape that hopelessness on the Metro lines. Twice in one week we were directly affected by those choices. Praise to God that we did not personally witness them, though the second time was very close. We have been so grateful to have a smart phone now so we can quickly find a new way home when a line is down due to malfunction or the sad cases of "emergency intervention".

I was really upset when I heard about it the first time. The second time we just missed the train that encountered that poor lost soul. That was harder. I'm not alone in feeling upset. You can see it on the faces of our fellow travelers. Some are angry about the inconvenience, but most turn and leave the station with the most somber look in their eyes. I was left wondering how to log this new information into my mind.

Like many people in Montreal, I can't just stop using the Metro to avoid encountering tragic news. I also can't be preoccupied by it, thinking about the people who do this and the possibility that my family and I may witness this at some point. So I did the only thing I could do. I prayed.

IMG_4497I pray for the people of Montreal. I pray for those that are deep in depression, for those whose lives have been impacted by witnessing these types of events, and for those reaching out to this enormous city. I realized that I cannot connect with every person in this city and give them hope. So, I will continue to pray that God would bring these people hope like He brought me hope and that He would bring more missionaries to Montreal so that those people would be reached with God's love.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
