Cold, cold, cold! Right now it's 6 degrees outside our breakfast nook window, headed for a high of 17. For those of you who live far away in warmer climes, enjoy it! We're actually enjoying this wintery weather, though I would like it a tad warmer.
Today is the only day this week we don't have to be somewhere outside of the house, so we get to homeschool all day. Yay! So much going on this time of year that it's a treat to be home for a whole day...
- SweetPea's got both math and science tests, as well as editing a story she's submitting to Vision Forum's story contest. She and I are also planning a Christmas tea for some of our friends next week, so we're finalizing our plans for that. Seemed like a good year to do this for us, with some good experience in all that hospitality entails. And she's mad at work on a piano composition she has to have ready for her teacher in a couple of weeks. It's a duet, which is harder to write.
- We're learning about Napolean and finishing up the French Revolution in our history studies. What an amazing time in history that was; brutal, desperate, wild. The church in disarray and powerless. It makes me appreciate all over again the relative peace we in the western world are enjoying right now, thanks to the Lord's purposes at work and the sacrifices of righteous people with His vision.
- Fried rice with shrimp and baked butternut squash and salad for dinner.
- I'm thankful for a warm house, my family and friends, for the privilege of homeschooling. God is good!
