I will learn from this and I will trust in Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, the Savior of the world, Redeemer and Lord.
I've also signed the kids up for a bi-weekly co-op that begins on Tuesday. They will be in a class called World Travel for the first hour and then go to PE for the second hour, after a fifteen minute snack break in between.
Adelle is in Grace Notes Girl Choir again this year (formally known as Cantabile Girls Choir) as well as American Heritage Girls, in which she has moved up to the Explorers level. Both of those are on Monday evenings. Choir is every Monday and AHG is every other Monday, right after choir. Adelle is still taking piano lessons but with a new teacher. She is adjusting well and seems to be more motivated to practice.
Jonathan has dropped piano (via Mama's doing), but he still plays around on it. He has joined Mississippi Boychoir though, which meets on Tuesday evenings for rehearsal. He was so excited after his first practice that he ran to me, giving me a big hug and saying "Yes! Yes! Yes!" I believe this will be a goof fit. This is an opportunity for him to grow, not only in music, but also in character. He will learn how to be respectful, responsible and how to work with others outside of the dynamics of our home.
Um, I don't see where the concern of homeschool kids being "unsocialized" comes from. *SHRUG*
I would like for the kids to memorize the books of the Bible so they can turn to the passages more quickly, especially while listening to sermons. So far they know Genesis to Esther.
We have also set the goal to read through the 4 gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) this school year. I have a cute little check list of how much to read each day. We'll read the short passage in our morning devotion time and have a little discussion about it. We finished up Matthew chapter 5 yesterday and will begin chapter 6 tomorrow.
Ok. I just recently logged back onto FB... not sure that was a smart thing to do, but my sister posted this there for my brother and myself. I busted out laughing... and I laugh every single time I see it.
I don't know much about the movie these little minion guys are from, but they always make me laugh!
