We finished up week 10 in our new schoolroom! I love our new area, more space and windows. Oh you can't imagine the difference seeing the sunlight come in does! This week we made some scarecrows, did our 3 R's...math, language arts and I have to share we enjoyed reading Owls In The Family, so much that I love to have an owl as a pet. In history we have been learning about the early Egyptians and science about animals that live in Europe. Our focus verse this week was Deuteronomy 6:4, and we finished up our month's virtue: service=using our hands, feet, and hearts to honor God and love others. Next month, is my favorite calendar month-November, because it's a beautiful time of year here in the southern states and it is Thanksgiving!! Our virtue for November is gratitude=so many reasons to be thankful! And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.~Colossians 3:17
For me personally, I have enjoyed getting back into reading. It was hard to find time during our moving process, but now that we are settled I am gaining back some of my personal time! Oh how I have missed it and oh how needed it is!! I am continuing to work my way through Beth Moore's Bible study~Children Of The Day, which I started with my Wednesday class at my previous church and because it spoke to me so much, I have continued doing it on my own. Plus it has become my favorite study of hers and probably all since I started doing Bible study years ago! Just so much truth is shared in the study and so relevant to what we Christians are being faced with daily! To be honest I struggle at times in my faith, but this study has really helped me to lean into God and trust HIM. Something I needed this year, as this year I have faced a lot of changes.
So what else am I reading....
- In This House, We Will Giggle by Courtney DeFeo, this is where I get our monthly virtues from.
- Teaching From Rest~A Homeschooler's Guide To Unshakable Peace by Sarah Mackenzie. I just adore her blog and video's, plus the title of the book is what grabbed my attention.
- Girl Meets Change~Truths To Carry You Through Life's Transitions by Kristen Strong. Well because this has been the year of change for me!
Share with me what your reading or your favorite books! Really I have too many favorite's! It's the book-lover, geek in me!
