What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Floored


Little scraps of paper, little notes---I find them EVERYWHERE these days. I just ASSUMED they were Corynns.

So when I found this paper the other day near the piano, I called her over and said "Corynn, you REALLY need to do a better job of picking up your notes and not leaving them on the floor." To which she replied.... "that isn't MINE."

"Well WHO, may I ask wrote it then?!?"

Andrew piped up "I DID!"

That is when stars started floating all about me and I scraped my jaw from the floor.

Since he is only four, I just assumed working on the letters in his name were top priority. Better rethink my strategy.

This is awesome!! Isn't it amazing what they can learn, even what you don't "teach" them!! My 22mth old can say the poem that her older siblings are learning. Yet, I didn't even "teach" it to her!! Got to love homeschooling!!

Fun! I was always amazed what the younger children seemed to learn by osmosis. Being in the same environment where learning is going on is just the right thing for younger siblings.

Now, who is learning piano?

What a star Andrew is!!!!! That is fabulous.

I also wanted to ask if you were still going to do Part 3 of your questions :-) I know it's a busy time of the year, so I'm not expecting it now :-) Just so you know that you have an eager reader here!

Cheers, Wilm in NZ

Wilm~ indeed I am...though it will have to come after the Holidays. It just occurred to me last weekend that I still hadn't posted that third segment. I wondered then, if anyone else had noticed. Glad to know SOMEONE did. ;-)
