In my journal the other day, I listed some things I was thankful for in our homeschooling day, so I thought I'd list them out, here, too...
* * *
4803 | morning hugs from Audra
4804 | Bible time with the kids over breakfast (reading about Moses)
4805 | getting outside for playtime and Nature Study and- when I called them in, they asked for extra time outside because they were having so much fun playing whatever game they'd made up out in the yard together. [Time given. ;)]
4806 | storytime with the kids on the couch, all the kids, all gathered around.... that sweet coming together that reading provides.
4807 | the All Kinds of Kisses book that Adelia chose for me to read, a book about farm animal mommies snuggling and kissing their little ones, and in which I announced that she would be getting kissed every time I read the word "kiss". So I tried to smooch her for each page and she hid beneath the blanket and giggled, and all the kids along with her.
4808 | Audra (6), telling me about the movie Peter Pan and how "that girl was acting all fancy and stuff" toward Peter. (I believe we would call it flirtatious but I loved her description!)
4809 | the sounds of the kids practicing piano
4810 | a good day of math for Ella~ no tears!
4811 | Clipboards! how well they've taken to them, and how great it is that they are working more independently.
4812 | Spelling with Isaias
4813 | Mark home for lunch
4814 | dinner in the crock pot (pork roast)
4815 | Mr. Putter & Tabby books, because we just love them.
