Starting The Day Right
We are back to a regular school schedule today. I should qualify this statement by saying that it is rare that any two days look the same around here.
However, after a lighter December schedule, and two weeks off for birthdays (Tim and Lindsay's), Christmas, New Years, and our 26th anniversary, it is time to get back to it!
We as a family are reading My Utmost Devotional Bible with daily readings from Oswald Chambers, Old Testament, Proverbs, Psalms and the New Testament.
Right now we are getting breakfast, making beds, and getting dressed. Then we will have our Morning Time - today we will chose our next passage of the Bible to work on, and we will begin to memorize a new poem. I'm going to let them help choose this time. They need a bit of motivating to get out of the holiday mode and back to daily life. Kyle said, "Why can't it be Christmas break forever?" I'm sure we all feel this way, but soon Christmas wouldn't be special anymore.
The kids made snowmen last night but it rained and they don't look so good now.
Look at all that green grass! We were covered in snow yesterday, but with warming temperatures, and rain it is mostly gone. I don't think we are expecting snow anytime soon, but the temperatures tomorrow are going to be very cold! Can you say Wind Chill?
Stay warm everyone, and have a wonderful day!
