The Walnut Acre Daily - Tuesday January 29, 2013

Words To Live By

Psalm 3:3

But you, Lord, are a shield around me,

my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

Preschool and Kindergarten Homeschool Fun

This morning we watched the video Jesus Loves Children and we completed this Jesus Feeds the 5000 maze

Today was also our last day of a fun letter sound video series. We watched the Letter Z Song , reviewed the  -ad family words and read Rag (a hooked on phonics book)

We also reviewed our memory verse, Romans 5:8, and sang our theme song for this month, Twinkle, Twinkle, Precious Star.

Amanda and Austin - Homeschool Assignments and Independent Learning

Austin and Amanda did two subjects today - For Bible we read Proverbs 20 and for Literature we read from No Woman So Fair by Gilbert Morris.

Other Books We Enjoyed Today

I read from these books with CJ and Michael this evening before bedtime.

Outdoor Fun

It was so nice to have a nice warm day today with temperatures in the upper 60s. The kids spent a lot of time outside. 

Furry, Feathered and Four Footed Friends

I think the chickens enjoyed the warmer weather too.

Green Things Growing

Well, they aren't growing yet but the Michael and Lauren helped me plant some Alpine strawberries today. These are a small strawberry suitable for containers. I will put them in the coldframe Doug built for me until they grow big enough and the weather is warm enough to put them outside.

We Are Going

Today Amanda finally got to go back to the SPCA to work with the animals. It seemed the last few weeks there was always one thing or another that kept us from going - weather, sickness, etc. 

Today's Quote

  1. We have the small wild strawberries growing all over the property. I am not sure how yummy they taste, but was thinking about trying to grow them where they are. Perhaps put a small fence up around them to prevent little bunnies. It really is a large patch. I don't know how many I would get. I also don't know how sweet they would be. I guess we will see.
