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
Dean and Dawn proud parents of these blessings:

A Few Home Education Projects (picture heavy)

 I  mentioned that we are using the Little House series right now as our main curriulum (not math or LA, those are seperate). Today, we did some review of what we had read thus far and started a lap book. I used to be intimidated by lap books, until we just dove in and tried one a few years ago. My kids enjoy doing them and they are pretty pain free. All my fears of doing them, were shot down once I tried it. I am not quite as crafty or creative as I wish I were but we get by. There are some great resources online that I use to make it a bit easier on me.

Here we are getting started.

Templates to be cut, completed, and glued

Today's finished items.

We discussed and noted; how they preserved meat, how Pa made bullets, gun safety, Laura and Mary's dolls, how to make butter, chores, and the difference in the Christmas's then and now.

Addy, Cade, and Kyler did a project today to help them understand the concept of our house, our town, our state, our country, our continent, and our planet.
