3/6/12 Helping Daddy

on March 6, 2012

We are so blessed to have generations of Godly wisdom teaching and influencing our children! Isn’t it the Father’s desire that generations in a family can be united in the task of home educating their children? Lord, use our grandmas to transfer a legacy of faith to the next generation.

What better way to start school than sorting buttons

and tiles with grandmas who get down on the carpet with us?

Psalm 78:4-7

Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.

For He established a testimony in Jacob,
And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers,
That they should make them known to their children;
That the generation to come might know them,
The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
That they may set their hope in God,
And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments;

                                                                                                                                 

Today, we pounded nails, sorted tools, and did some drilling just like daddy because we are daddy’s helpers! We read this book, which was a favorite of mine when I was little (and referred to as “Daddy’s girl”).

In circle, we built two towers of blocks, one on a shaky foundation and the other on a firm foundation, to illustrate the Bible parable of the two men who built houses on the rock and the sand. The illustration showed that building your life on the rock solid foundation of Jesus Christ is how to make life count, because when you build your life on anything else, sadly it will all be washed away.

We help daddy pound nails

Here is how you do it guys! Madelyn gets the job done exhibiting her fine motor control.

Our pretty science teacher Miss Cherie smiles (for a better shot than last time)

We are going to make cleaning products to help mommy and daddy!

I wonder what would happen if I squirt this in my eye?….. (Madelyn)  I wonder what this tastes like?….(Noah)

Water and vinegar, or water and baking soda is all you need to make natural cleaning products

We were happy to help Miss Lynn clean up her house

Then we blew up balloons and baked bread using vinegar and baking soda, but no pics because I had a baby sleeping on me. 🙂 It was a fun lesson and the balloons were a favorite part of school today!

Noah still stickering looong after school is over
