Where’s My Book, Mommy?

There’s no time to early to introduce your kids into loving school, in my opinion. I’d been working my my two year old son Owen doing schooling here and there but not scheduled and nothing that was in a book. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, that I noticed him feeling left out when I was working with his sister in her school workbook. He kept saying, ” Where’s my book, Mommy?,”.

Well, with that I jumped into action and ordered him a few Kumon Workbooks off Amazon.com. These work books are great for children ages 2 and up and they are very affordable. The result of using them has made schooling both my son and daughter much easier and he’s extremely excited and happy with his own books!

Melody’s Spring Planting

2013-03-18
Gardening is a wonderful hands-on activity that I recently incorporated into our Bible study.  While planting these flowers we talked about other ways in which we “plant and water seeds” in our everyday life! Sowing, reaping, being patient, putting your best effort forward, carefully taking care and being aware, etc. Gardening is a wonderful activity to do with a child to teach so many different character building skills and Biblical principles.

Mark 4:20 says “But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.
