Pool Care (Daniel is our "pool guy" and is responsible for maintaining a clean & healthy pool.)

Family Bible: We do this together in the mornings. If Danny teaches, he has a topic on his heart and teaches that using various scriptures. I often read a proverb for the day as well as a missionary biography that we're reading aloud. Plus I will teach on various topics that may apply. We're waiting for the Bible Study Series from Heidi St. John, and then we'll begin that.

*may change. Daniel's 5th grade English is exposing a few holes that I need to fill in. I'll use either Easy Grammar or possibly First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind which I used for Bethany. It's a rigorous and thorough, never-to-be forgotten, English Grammar series by Peace Hill Press. Either that, or we'll pick back up from Shurley English, our choice for last year.
