We started with devotion. I have learned in the past that if I don’t do the devotion and talk with God at the start of our day, Satan sneaks in as a disruptive student. The devotion was about Family Stories. The ones that start out “When I was your age…” or Did I ever tell you about the time…” We love telling stories in this family. It is always a great source of laughter and family bonding. Moses was told by God, “You will be able to tell wonderful stories to your children and grandchildren.” Telling God’s stories helps us to encourage people during difficult times, strengthen other’s faith, and builds trust in God. So if you’re a part of God’s family get our there and become a story teller.
The math lesson was easy but long. Both JD and I thought it was too long. It was about comparing and ordering fractions. JD did most of it in his head by wondering which one would yield the most pieces (of pizza or pie) to eat. And he was right most of the time. I on the other hand did it the mathematical way by finding the common denominator and working through my problem. Funny how God designed my little guy. (It sounds funny to type little.)
Speaking of being little, JD made mention today that he was sweating while sitting still. Can anyone say, “Possibly the beginning of puberty?
The language arts lesson today was looking at a rough draft from 4 Nov. called Tuesday’s Football Practice. He hand wrote it the other day and I typed it up today. I typed it exactly like he wrote it. With 9 spelling error, 5 capitalization errors, and 2 punctuation errors. He could easily see the spelling errors underlined in red and fixed most of them. We looked up the word “axadinteley” (accidentally) so he could see the correct spelling because of word processing had no spelling suggestions. So we edited his paper and printed out the final copy. I really think we made progress today and we did it with a positive non-criticizing way.
