a bit of a routine for our days.
We used to have one
but it seems that since we moved here,
Daddy left, Ally got sick, Gramma came,
and life just got so busy.
Anyhoo... I'm slowly beginning to
implement this somewhat 'routine',
in addition to our week of obedience (re)training.
The first thing I want to become consistent in
with our daily events is our Bible/Proverbs time.
Before we moved, we did this often
and really enjoyed it.
So today we began it again.
The children listened as I read
through a chapter of Proverbs
(the chapter corresponds with
the day of the month...
ex. today is the 30th, we read Proverbs 30).
Sometimes we just read
and sometimes we discuss
a few verses together.
After our reading aloud,
we (or just mama)
choose a verse of focus.
I, then write it on the dry erase board,
we read it a few times aloud,
and then we illustrate the verse
(everyone offers their ideas and mama draws)...
Then they put the verse and illustration
on their own piece of paper and color it.
Mama draws for Beth and Carolynne
and they do the coloring.
Will does his illustration himself
and I, sometimes, help him with the
color-in letters for the words.
They enjoy working on them...
Ally wasn't able to do one of her own
but she still commented on how she enjoyed
doing Proverbs Time with everyone this morning.
Here were their (somewhat) finished projects...
Carolynne's, Beth's, and Will's
I like to keep them in a 3-ring binder.
The children enjoyed playing outside today, too.
They couldn't wait to see how their garden was growing.
Will laughed at his green beans...
they were starting to stand straight up!
Also, today, we went to pick up Ally's new glasses.
She was so excited that she would
be able to see/read without her eyes hurting.
I think they look very nice on her...
We enjoyed a nice supper with Gramma.
She leaves in two more days. (boo hoo)
We've SO enjoyed having her here.
It's been such a blessing!
I hope y'all are enjoying your week!
