Finished!

Daddy has recently started reading the Bible to us every night ( I'm so glad!) and we just finished Genesis! It was very interesting to see who was related to who, and Daddy pointed out how, for example: Abraham had Isaac and Ishmael. Isaac's descendants became the Israelites, Ishmael's descendants became the Arabs. Jacob married from their people, and Esau married foreign women. Some of their own left, but their was always a remnant remaining. Tonight we read the first chapter in Exodus, and it was very interesting :) . here's a quote from the introduction to Exodus in my Bible: " "Exodus" is a Latin word derived from Greek Exodos, the name given to the book by those who translated it into Greek. The word means "exit" "departure". " I'll keep y'all posted on our progress :) .
