IN MY LIFE THIS WEEK
IN OUR HOMESCHOOL THIS WEEK
Bible - We've been studying that Jesus is the Light and have memorized John 8:12.
History - We are learning American History this year. This week we learned about the Pilgrims. I, myself, didn't know the pilgrims tried to live in Holland before making their way to the New World. I also didn't realize they weren't the first people from across the sea to make America their new home. I guess I didn't retain much from my school days! LOL
Science - We've been learning about the stars, sun, constellations and the universe - in general terms.
Math, Language Arts, Reading - Not very interesting stuff to write about. Adelle's handwriting and reading skills continue to improve. Jonathan is blowing my mind with his reading abilities! He's learning cursive writing and tries very hard to do it correctly.
Music - We have listened to 2 patriotic songs and Jesus is the Light by Carman. Both children have started piano lessons back up. Adelle attends rehearsal for girl choir on Monday evenings and Jonathan attended a rehearsal for the boy choir.
Art - The kids continue to make little crafts at the Library Story time each week. We have also made some crafts in Bible to reinforce that Jesus is the Light.
HELPFUL HOMESCHOOL TIPS/ADVICE
Yeah.... I'm cooking, or we don't eat. That's just how our budget works right now. Sometimes I have to get creative and that is difficult for me. I do not enjoy being in the kitchen, yet I'm in there 75% of the time!
WHAT'S WORKING/NOT WORKING FOR US
I AM WATCHING
I watched Audacity this week. You might find it interesting.
A QUOTE TO SHARE
SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we life and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10
