This Day

Take a glimpse into our day:

Bethany is discovering how to make equivalent fractions while Daniel is turning his world upside down reading. I knew progress was being made because his body and his book were turned the same way. I should add that not only was his torso upside down while reading, but he threw in some contrived accent to boot. Bethany obviously has a mind like a steel trap in that she seemed to focus quite well on her adventures. Something tells me she's going to make a great Mom.
May I confess that I loved this moment?

I really admire those that choose to homeschool. It is a ministry in itself.

Brenda said...

Just another day in the lives of homeschoolers! Nothing unusual at all!
Love it.
Happy September.

Looks like a great day! That is some serious concentration Bethany's got going on:) I would love to hear that accent sometime, he's such a funny little guy!

Kathy said...

Thank you Sister.Faith. Yes, I too think it is a ministry. As I told someone yesterday, even though I "wouldn't have it any other way", it doesn't lessen the commitment and effort to fulfill the task. If you know anyone who's considering homeschooling I recommend Sally Clarkson's book, "Educating the Whole-Hearted Child", a book wherein the focus is truly on educating the WHOLE child. We can easily focus on curriculum only, but the purpose of homeschooling is taking up our God-given calling to train up the next generation.

Thanks for coming by, and I'm enjoying our blog friendship.

We start next week and I can hardly wait! I will have to show the upside down reading technique to Savannah...she will want to try that I am sure of it!

Kathy said...

Gina, I hope you have a great start to the new school year. I know ya'll are moving which is not the easiest time to begin a school year. Well let's see, Savannah can practice her penmanship on the moving boxes :) She can identify squares, rectanges, and the like. She can work on ordinal numbers...unload this box first, this one second, etc. : ) Homeschooling on the move, literally. Blessings and keep us posted in blog world on how it's all going.

This shows how different kids are and how those things show up in the way they learn.
