I’VE FINALLY UPDATED THIS PAGE! YAY! 🙂
A few weeks ago a bad storm knocked out our power in the middle of the night. It was pitch black. I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. I was able to light a candle, and I really couldn’t even take a step without that candle. It gave a whole new meaning to the verse I’ve heard over and over again my entire life…
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
Can you imagine having NO electric lights- ever!? Your lamp, candle, torch would be vital. The Psalmist says that God’s word is that vital to him. You can’t take a step without it.
SO, I wanted to list our most important textbook, THE TEXTBOOK FOR ALL OF LIFE on this page- THE BIBLE! We spend as much time in God’s Word each day as we do math, or English, or Latin.
We explore other books that help us understand God’s Word better…
And we sing God’s Word back to Him each morning and evening…
Other Stuff: 🙂

Character Training- I am really excited about these books from Doorposts. (If you haven’t checked out this company, you must!! I just got the Blessing Chart, and I love it!) Each book has enough studies and activities to last for years! In Polished Cornerstones, girls study Proverbs 31 and learn about fulfilling their rolls as godly wives, mothers, and homemakers. In Plants Grown Up, boys learn about growing up to become godly men!
The twins are still continuing in A Beka preschool.
I am working toward doing more activities from Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready.
Fundanoodle activities in tracing, patterns, cutting, lacing, etc.
