Christmas Week

So for Christmas we discussed why we as a family celebrate Christmas. We talkies about the birth of our Savior. We talked about how God loved us so much that He brought Jesus to us. We discussed the important players of the Christmas story... Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the Wise Men, the angels, and of course Jesus. We discussed how they are important and what role they played in the most important story known to man.
We also discussed the candy cane. Tater and Jr Bug both get candy canes for Christmas. We talked about how the candy canes can point us to Christ. How the cane is shaped like a J for Jesus. How the red symbolizes His blood shed for us, and the white symbolizes His purity. We also discussed how the the cane looks like a shepherds staff and how Christ is our Shepherd.
Well that's it for this week. See you next week for week 13.
Merry Christmas to all.

Week 12

So week 12 has seen us busy with reading and with learning about the food pyramid. Tater spent most of this week learning about the major food groups and diagramming the foods we ate. Tater also began reading her first chapter book. We ended the week learning about zoology. As a craft we made a lion. A male lion ad evidenced by its mane.

We've been learning a new Bible Scripture this week. Titus 2:11-15. Both kiddos are learning to recite this Scripture.

Stay tuned for our Christmas week. We are only doing 3 days of school. We are going to take a 2 day break and enjoy family time.

See you next week.

We are back and in full swing

Well hello, its been weeks since I've blogged. I am so sorry about that. Life has been crazy. Good but sad. Happy but trying. But like Paul said...I have learned to be content in all things.
Let's see when I last blogged I told you I was having a hand amputated. And I have had that done. And we are still moving forward. God has been gracious to us. He has allowed us to move steadily on. Teaching is going great. Life is returning to normal and we are still praising God.
Albeit we have moments in which life is not always so sweet. We have had to drop Jr Bug from schooling for a time. While he still learns from educational shows, from life, from reading, and playing games, he is not being taught from me. I've refocused my efforts, but for now, he is still learning and I've learned to be OK with that.
Tater is still schooling. She is also learning about patience and how to press on even when the odds are against you. She has become my champion, and often when its me who should be teaching her, its her who teaches me. I'm blessed beyond measure to have her as my child.
All right so school is back in session. Get ready, get set, let's learn...
