So what's going on you might ask?
Well, we had a wonderful time at VBS this week---it was a Jerusalem Marketplace theme. The kids spent each day learning things like:
-How to sing the Hebrew alphabet
-they made dreidels and learned how to play the game
-they raised money for children in India--over $900 cumulatively and Jagger's team won a Shema bracelet for being the number one team!
-they learned what a mezzuza was and what it is used for.
It was really an outstanding program...complete with Synagogue school with a real Rabbi and outdoor games for the time period.
Okay so on top of homeschooling starting again soon--this means paperwork galore, my next semester starting soon--exciting because I get to learn Biblical Greek this semester, and the homeschool conference starting--next week, and my in-laws coming in town next weekend, the kiddos wanting to fit the zoo in there somewhere, my daughter pretending to be a cat, the older boys fighting over who wants to cook more, Xander being convinced that Hobby Lobby is located inside the church and totally ticked that I won't take him RIGHT NOW (a story for another time)...
Whew...I need a pause.
Did I mention Xander has taken to hissing and growling at me lately as a warning?
Anyhow, give me a couple of days to catch up...but boy, do I have some stories for you!
Speaking of I have also managed to get in some personal reading time...I am so in love with this book at the moment...Put it on your 'must read' list. I promise you will not be disappointed.
See, I'm not that bad of a slacker..
