Who says you don't learn something every day

Yestersday, we all slept in due to satying up late  and colds that we are fighting off. It was a good thing that we all slept as late as we could... but it is a bit hard to get your day going.

   So we ate our breakfast, got dressed for the day, and started our chores as we always do.

Christopher, saw the binoculars that my oldest gave to our family, and asked if after his chore he could go out and look..... of coarse I said.... well every time he saw something he would report to me what it was...... mind you he doesn't knowe the names of birds .... but would tell me what color they were.... or even if he saw a deer.... he is a explorer in the making!!!
Dallas, is a little boy that I watch during the week, and while everyone else was creating he was chooseing to build  some thing in his 20 month old mind...... It was nice to see this busy little boy so content to stay still for 15 minutes
Rebekah loves to help with anything she can.... and today we decided with bake cookies... I have usually told her what spoon to use and how much...... BUT this time the fraction cramming  has planted a seed in her brain.... YES!!!!
We even double the recipe and she was able to figue it out..... I was so very proud of her.
And they became the most beautiful cookies ever and a very proud little girl was smiling from ear to ear..... 

So no we didn't do school in a paper sitting kind of way... but we did have alot of hands on learning yesterday.... and it was a wonderful feeling to have and see... I am so greatful that  these children are given to me to raise in the way of the Lord.

Proverbs 22:6

 6 Train  a child in the way he should go, 
       and when he is old he will not turn from it.
