Week 14 In Adventures

Last week in Adventures we learned about Delaware, Pennsylvania and Georgia. On the day in which we learned about PA, Cainen got to make the Liberty Bell. He did such a great job writing the scripture verse on the bell. He has beautiful handwriting, much better than mine I dare say. It was a lot of fun making it! For Georgia, we made a yummy peach cobbler, since GA is known for peaches. Yesterday we learned about Connecticut and their state bird the robin. So, we made robin nests that the boys could eat! For grass we used shredded wheat, for twigs we used chow mein noodles, for mud we used melted chocolate and peanut butter. As always Jonah was thrilled about eating this interesting creation of his but Cainen, not so much! This week I am going to have the boys do some nature study outside. Using their binoculars, we will be able to look for birds and journal our findings. Oh, the joys of homeschooling!

Those look so good! Yummy :) Were those in the manual or did you find it somewhere else?

Greetings to one and all: In that most precious name. That name which is above every name, the name: "Jesus"

There's tremendous power in that name. I'd suppose we'll never fully realize all that can truly be accomplished, by us simply calling out that name in true faith.

There's an old, old, gospel song that goes like this: Faith in the Father, faith in the Son, faith in the Holy Spirit, great victories are won. Demons will tremble and sinners will awake, faith in Jehovah will anything shake.

For you who have never come into this realization, if you're reading this, just give him a welcome into your heart and life. You will both feel and see an awesome difference. You will have also purchased the ticket to heaven (by accepting, therefore making him welcome to come into your life. You will also sup from His cup that contains living water. (As did the woman at the well of Bethesda.) John 4:10
