Spring-Sunshiney-School


We have been enjoying some very fine spring weather the last few days, so the kids and I decided to do school outside yesterday! They loved it and it felt so good to be warm in the sunshine. On a sidenote: we went to the homeschool curriculum store earlier that day and picked up a new math book for Ava and on an impulse I bought a unit study on the Fruits of the Spirit. I was hoping that this would encourage more loving and less fighting, if you know what I mean. About five minutes after doing our first lesson on love, Ava went inside to get herself some more ice cubes and brought some for Jonah, too. She said she just thought he might like some. I rejoiced by praising her up and down, giving her some big slurpy kisses and all the while thinking "Thank you Jesus! It's sinking in!"

sounds lovely... maybe you can have seasons school, like winter-gray school and teach in the snow. nah, that doesn't sound as nice as lovely warm sunshine.

I predict a few setbacks before nightfall!

Great to see you enjoying the great weather outside...and it is wonderful when we see our children practice what we try to teach them :) Keep up the good work!
