First day of official homeschooling. First day of Kindergarten Six. First day of Rhythm of Grace. First day’s rhythm in pictures.
Started my day with personal devotions. Daniel 5:23 “God in whose hand is your breath” – reminded me that living today is a blessing from Him and my life today should praise Him and bring Him glory.
Woke my sleepy head and 9:00. She crawled in bed with me and we cuddled and read “Autumn Story” from The Complete Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem.
Rose loves to make the bed – even if I am still in it.
Rose chose to wear her new Sunday dress for our first day of school. Then we had her favorite breakfast – bagel with cream cheese. The CapriSun is a complete treat, left over from the holiday weekend.
Morning outside exercise and counting practice. Rose jumped 163 times before falling!
Lighting our candle, and beginning to learn Psalm 8. “O Lord, Our Lord, How majestic is your name in all the earth.”
Rose acted out the “Snow White” with her figurines, while I told the story.
Dancing, chanting, singing, and finger-plays in Circle Time.
Coloring a self-portrait for the first day of school.
“Mommy – my picture of myself is beautiful – but yours is creepy!”
“Dear Jesus, thank you for Mommy and school at home. Thank you for colors, and Snow White, and music. Thank you for this happy day. Amen”
Chores. “Hey Mom, I’m just like Snow White – sweeping up the dwarfs house!”
Free Time choices: nature table, coloring, legos and …
Still life photography (Still life arranged & photographed by Rose herself)
All in all, a very good day – only 2,339 to go.
