This has been what will most likely be our hardest week of school. My father-in-law passed away on Tuesday. It was not completely unexpected but certainly sooner than we had anticipated. Teaching kids about death and heaven is not an easy task. But when they have to experience it personally it is a very hard thing to do, especially when my kids have been praying for their Grandpa to heal. Kids have such faith even though we adults tend to doubt. We were told by doctors that he had 2 more months to live. We take that as fact but not the kids they pray with such amazing faith that God would heal him. I so want faith like theirs!! He was a saved man that loved the Lord!! So as hard as it was for all of us we are so happy to know that he is in heaven rejoicing.
I will still post what we did get done this week even though we were only here for 3 days.
We didn't do any preschool.
OD for Math got through lesson #24 in her Saxon.
She finished Unit 3 Sect 3 L.A
We did Chap #6 , Strangers and Saints in Plymouth, The Dutch in the New World.
In Health we are learning about the Skeleton and Joints. OD made a "Mr. Skeleton" I printed from Enchanted learning.com.
For Science we worked on Lesson 3 Mercury.
