A few moments to share a few photos and highlights
from last week and today...
Last Thursday, we attended Daddy's graduation
from 7 weeks of an advanced gunnery sergeant course.
It had a few humorous highlights
and it was a blessing to be there to support our Marine...
Also, on Thursday, I cut out dresses
for Beth, Carolynne, a regency gown for myself,
and a pair of bloomers for the lil' girls.
Friday was sourdough pizza day with friends. Yum!
And Saturday was a work day.
I did LOTS of laundry (sheets, blankets, etc...)
and Daddy worked with Will.
They steam cleaned the dining room rug together.
Here was Will in his turn...
They, also, had 'car talk', fixed a dining room chair,
and did a woodworking project together...
Making a tank from a kit a friend sent us. ;o)
Today we worked at implementing our schedule more
and picked up with our academics some.
We started off with Bible (using ideas from SOW),
reading in Genesis 21, getting vocab words from our reading,
coloring the story, and doing prayer letters.
Ally began sewing Beth's birthday dress for me
and was able to work in her Advanced Biology.
Will worked on copywork (Language and Math),
cursive, read his library books, again,
(since we return them tomorrow).
His area of choice to do his seatwork...
It's probably the quietest place. ;o)
He and I, also, read Sciene aloud and began ancient history.
Beth and Carolynne did their Language Lessons with me
and worked on letter formation.
In addition to our academics, we blessed our home.
I worked in the kitchen and laundry room
while Will did the dining room
and vacuumed the stairs...
Beth and Carolynne worked in
the living room and the reading room,
picking up toys, putting away blankets, shoes, and books...
Ally wasn't feeling well enough to participate
so she was allowed to make her Monday post, instead.
She's been doing a series regarding
I was, also, able to fill out lots of paperwork
for Ally's new endocrinologist,
reschedule our field trip to the island beach,
have a cup of yummy, chai green tea,
hug my children, and disciple them and teach them
as we were going about our day.
I have been praying the Lord will help me
to be more consistent in all aspects of my life
and to be so with a meek & quiet spirit.
It is not possible without the Lord
but, praise Him, that
I can do all things through Christ
which strengtheneth me"! (Philippians 4:13)"
I'm off to begin supper
and enjoy a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie
with all of my little sweeties!
I hope y'all enjoyed your day, too!
