Psalm 127:3-5

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5

A day in the life

Even before we started our dayI had been thinking of taking more photos of what we do around here share them. Here is a day in the life of 4 of our home educated children; Reegan, Cael, Quincy, and Addelynn.

You may wonder where Carter and Mackenzie are. Today Carter worked on his workbook subjects in his room, he prefers to do his school work in there and as a 7th grader he works independently and alone most of the time, unless we are on a family adventure. He is doing a study in Forensic Science right now, as well as a study of our county's history and all things military.

Mackenzie is also on her own mostly. As a senior she knows what to do and how to schedule it. I did give her a suggestion and right now she is working on one subject a day. A weeks worth of work each day.
Addy working on her letters.
Quincy working on math.

Math time - Reegan must be happy!

These are word tiles, we used them to make sentences, copy them, and identify nouns, verbs, and adjectives.

Science - today we studied water in all three forms and the kids noted observations in their notebooks.

Learning states and capitals.

Jack observing blowing leaves and the activity of squirrels.

Reading Bible, poems, and about Lewis and Clark.

Watching Popular Mechanics for Kids in Reegan's room. Where is Addy you may ask? She fell asleep during the Lewis and Clark book.

You can see Jaycie hanging our for our reading. Cade and Kyler? They were playing so quiet this morning with cars. Cade could play for many hours alone. Tomorrow we are off to pre school power hour at the Science Station. Is is a Hall o ween party and so they are going to dress up. Some will listen to the program and others will just explore.

  1. I think we have the same table. My little ones like to sit on top of it as we learn, too! I also liked the picture of the dog!
