Homeschooling this week

Well, last week a lot of our books took longer than expected to come in at the library, and then some of the books and videos that were meant to go along with our Bible reading were either too mature for my children, or I didn't care for them for other reasons. So we'll try again.

Memory work this week

Bible verses:

I John 1:7-9 (ESV) 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


"The Little Elf'"
By John Kendrick Bangs

I met a little Elf-man, once,
Down where the lilies blow.
I asked him why he was so small
And why he didn’t grow.

He slightly frowned, and with his eye
He looked me through and through.
“I ’m quite as big for me,” said he,
“As you are big for you.”
