Words to Live By
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possesions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
Preschool and Kindergarten Homeschool Fun
Phonics and Reading
We completed the Starfall online Rr lesson and did the printable worksheet.
And we did an "ad" word family review with word mats I printed from 3 Dinosaurs' word family printables.
We read The Hungry Duckling . . .
. . . and then watched these three videos about the kinds of birds that were in this book - Common Kingfisher, Quacker and Flapper, and A Guide to Keeping Hens in Your Garden.
Other Books We Enjoyed Today
I read from these books with CJ and Michael before bedtime this evening.
Furry, Feathered and Four Footed Friends
A friend of ours from church is wanting to find a home for his chickens so he asked me Sunday if we would take them. I didn't realize when I said yes quite how many there were but yesterday I found out there are fourteen - eleven hens and three roosters. We're picking them up tomorrow evening. So this evening Doug and CJ went out to work on getting this huge shipping crate he got from work ready for their coop.
Out and About
Michael had another doctor's appointment today. This one was just a routine yearly check and it went very well. Also, I was so pleased with his behavior today. He sat still in the waiting room, waited patiently in the exam room for the doctor, and cooperated wonderfully during the exam. We have one more routine yearly checkup tomorrow, a kidney ultrasound. Three appointments in one week has definitely kept me hopping.
Just Having Fun Together
Later this month three additions to our crew will be joining us on a daily basis. Today they were here for a couple hours as a bit of warm up, trial run. We're looking forward to having many more fun days together.
