Kashaiah and Kohen have been hunting hard since deer season opened in October. Here are a few pictures from the last 2 firearm seasons.
Last weekend, Gracie, Kanah, Elly, and Heritage went to see the Nutcracker ballet hosted by the Children’s Center for Dance Education. Heritage was thrilled beyond words since she got to go see a ballet with the “big girls.”
Elly came in the other day and said that she should have puppies on or around Christmas! If you are interested in a puppy you can contact her at (618) 446-3194. Please forward this to anyone you think may be interested. Thanks!
ICHE is promoting a new audio drama. We have a copy and love it! It is the story of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The drama is based on a biblical worldview and contains many godly virtues for both boys and girls. Please use this code, ICHE1 to get $5 off your purchase. This offer only lasts a short time. In Freedoms’s Cause would make a fantastic Christmas gift for anyone and one we highly recommend! Please visit this link for more info.
We have a new all time favorite book! All the girls read it individually, then Dad read it to the boys. Drum roll please…
True to the Last by Evelyn Everett-Green. This book is fantastic for boys and girls. It teaches boys manly virtues and the girls what to look for in future spouses. Warning: this book is a tear-jerker. Every person in our family was a sobbing basket case. Gives you something to look forward to! We highly recommend this book, you can purchase it from the Lamplighter website at http://store.lamplighter.net/true-to-the-last-p364.aspx.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! We had a great time with the family and all the wonderful food!
Ronald Reagan, Thanksgiving Day, 1986:
“Perhaps no custom reveals our character as a Nation so clearly as our celebration of Thanksgiving Day. Rooted deeply in our Judeo- Christian heritage, the practice of offering thanksgiving underscores our unshakable belief in God as the foundation of our Nation and our firm reliance upon Him from Whom all blessings flow.”
This concerning article came through in our newsfeed this morning. We would encourage everyone to read it, regardless of the educational system you prefer.
Our sleep was cut short last night due to a microburst or straight line winds. We had our trampoline staked into the ground 2′ deep and it ripped it up and threw it into our pasture (100 yards) and blew over our beloved willow tree. We spent much of the early morning hours down in the basement. Nothing like having a homeschool lesson at 4 a.m. about tornadoes!
Kashaiah is home from her last goat show of the year. She had a great time and is looking forward to showing again next Summer. Here is a picture of her with one of her little buddies, Cole Vanzant
