"...and all of your children shall be taught of the Lord and
great shall be the peace of your children." Hab 2:2
As I continue to refine our school and seek to make it what God would want it to be for this family, I am continually reminded by HIM that my main focus should always be HIM. I mean, there is nothing..I mean absolutely NOTHING that I can teach them that is even remotely as important as teaching them about their heavenly Father. Teaching them to walk in his ways, to love his ways, to seek after him in all they do. To desire to please him in all things...to always seek God's favor over Man's success.
So, as I look through curriculum and websites and books and plans that I have made I am finding myself constantly trying to figure out how to bring it all back around to him.
"I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go. " Isaiah 48:17
Oh how I pray for wisdom and direction and guidance...I'm talking handwriting on the wall people!!! I can mess up around the house...the laundry, the meals, whatever else...but not these children!!!
Well, I have posted some pictures from the last few weeks. We took this past week off to prepare for Thanksgiving. It was a good time together for the three of us as we tackled several projects. Amazingly we still managed to sneak some school work into our work work and it was time well spent!! I hope you enjoy the pictures~
Aly had a fun science experience that we worked on...we gathered our materials.
The experience was about "germination" You should have seen me scouring around for bean seeds in November!!! LOL
Lili was so funny...she had to connect the dots by number, but then she thought she was supposed to connect the pictures as well!!! See the black line going from one pic to the other? We all got a good laugh at that one...even her!
We are so enjoying the "Which Way USA" puzzle books and maps for each of the States. So far we have done Florida, Texas, New York, and California. Next week we start on Oklahoma. Aly is getting a good overview of each state and learning a lot of fun facts as well. We also are spending a good bit of time doing map work with each state. It is her favorite thing we do, so it always gets saved for the last subject of the day so as to provide good motivation to get everything else done!!! I'm a smart Mommy like that!! :-)
