sorry I'm a bit late, again, with posting our verse. I can't make up my mind if I want to do a tot book or lapbook for kites with the letter K, lol. But I thought I would go ahead and leave our verse for the letter L, just in case someone was interested: "love one another, for love comes from God. 1 John 4:7"
