Quick Pics from Our China Study...

Though our study on China has ended,
I wanted to share a few quick pics
that I had not, yet, shared from our study.

Here the lil' girls were doing Chinese numeral copywork...

(copywork pages found at enchantedlearning.com)

Will read Count Your Way Through China
after finishing his Chinese numerals copywork...

On Friday, we wrapped up our China study
by having a Chinese food art lunch
with chopsticks, traditional Chinese music, and friends...
I shared a photo of the children gathered on the floor
during this lunch in my previous post
but I wanted to share these photos below, as well...

Learning to use chopsticks...

Their own creative Chinese food art...

It was such a blessing to study China.
It was a blessing for the children and I to spend the week
in prayer for a missionary family currently in China.
It was a blessing, too, to learn about missionaries of the past
that served God in that country...
to see their example of courage, faithfulness, love,
and resolve to serve, honor, and obey Jesus Christ
with their lives and, many times, at all cost.
Those are the "heroes", the examples, our children need.
They're the ones I need, too.
And the example I know I need to set. May the Lord help me.
Thank you, Lord, for the examples of faithfulness
You have set before us, in others and of Yourself.
May we learn to be more like Thee.

"Brethren, be followers together of me,
and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample."
~ Philippians 3:17

"For even hereunto were ye called:
because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example, ye should follow his steps:"
~ 1 Peter 2:21

Are you using the Student of the Word curriculum? I saw your post over in the sidebar about it and wondered if that's what you're currently using.

We're using A Beka, and while it's a good curriculum, I'm not convinced it's the best fit for our family. Do you have any words of wisdom for a still-new-to-homeschooling mama?

So, I am kind of "gleaming" aka copying some of your ideas on the China study. I hope you don;t mind.

Since we are going to China to pick up our daughter, and Samuel is coming with us, I thought it would be a good idea to give the poor boy a clue.

The pictures make it look as though you had a great time doing this study!!

It looks like you all had a very fun time and a good study. I like how concise you made the study - in just a week. I tend to over-kill, and things just go on & on until we tire of it. lol Too many books. Okay, now I'm hungry for Asian food - thanks Christina. lol Have a good day!

We have been studying China too. I absolutely love the food art. Can you guess what we are going to do this week for a snack?? Thanks for the idea!

I gave you a blog award. I know I don't comment often but I love your blog and wanted to let you know. You can see it here. http://homefrontlines.blogspot.com/2009/02/i-gots-award.html
