This week we have been attempting
to get 'back on track' with homeschool
(even though we still don't have all our books)
and trying to ease into a 'schedule'.
The main focus of easing into our schedule
has been to rise, eat, bless our home,
and have Bible time together.
If the rest of our schedule falls into place, it's an added bonus.
So far we have done pretty well,
even with our running around town the last two days
(well yesterday was void of any seatwork but for a 'good cause').
We have, again, enjoyed diving into God's Word.
If you have never read God's Word with a dictionary,
I recommend that you do. What a blessing it is!
We enjoy pulling words out of the passages (for our vocab)
and looking them up (Webster's 1828).
Even if we 'know' what the word, generally, means,
it delights us to study it further!
In addition to reading our chapters in Genesis,
pulling out vocab words, and doing prayer letters,
the younger ones have enjoyed color pages
and drawing their illustrations.
Our verses of focus this week:
"And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb..."
"And Abraham... looked, and behold behind him a ram..."
"And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh..."
Jehovah-jireh = The LORD will provide
Below are their illustrations for Genesis 22...
The picture can be clicked on to enlarge
so the details of their illustrations can be seen.
We look forward to continuing in our studies!
It is always a blessing when we can get into God's Word
but we get so much more when we take time to study It!

which I have loved."

it is my meditation all the day."

therefore thy servant loveth it."
