Even a ladybug is astonishing and full of wonder if you stop and look at it. Have you ever really looked closely at a ladybug? I imagine God with a huge paintbrush (that has a tiny tip) painting all the spots on the ladybug when he created them.
Ok, now for an update on school... We started on Monday, so today was Day 3.
Lake is thinking, "what in the world? I guess I will go with these crazy people."
Then, we pray for good attitudes and eager minds and to glorify God with school.
Then we have a devotion using the best book..
We do Math (Saxon),

I want to eat them up when they are figuring out answers.
They are so cute!
I love every second of homeschooling. I want you to know that when I talk about it, I don't at all want to put down non-homeschooling moms. I KNOW that God has different plans for different families.
I just love to share my heart and how exhilarating it is to be with your kids when they get the bonus question. I practically do a standing back tuck.
I also love teaching them the Word of God and learning about God's creation together. I feel like I started school 3 days ago too.
Anyway, it is WAY more fun than I thought it would be.
My friends have asked how long I spend homeschooling. I keep going as long as they love what we are doing. So far, they want to keep learning because it is fun. I know that may change but for now, it is just a big chunk of "play time" for them so they don't want to stop.
This last picture is dedicated to my good friend, Deena, who FINALLY got a computer in her kitchen to check blogs all day. Welcome to the world of tons of wasted time on the computer!!!
