Resurrection Sunday!

What a day to celebrate! What a display of love and power! On this day we see His authority confirmed (Acts 2:32-33), the hope our own future resurrection established (Rom. 6:4-5), the keys to death and hell confiscated (Rev. 1:18), the disarmament and humiliation of ruler and powers as He put them to open shame (Col. 2:15), and the comfort that a living Savior brings to His people (Matt. 28:18-20). Oh, what a Savior!

Here are some of the highlights from the time spent remembering the Resurrection of our Lord.


Once again, we must be careful as parents of children. Woe to us if we find ourselves focusing on the peripherals (bunnies, eggs, candy, etc.), while merely moving Christ into the "also" category. For all of His suffering, He will have no competition on this day or any. However, woe to us also if we, as those who have true hope, are out celebrated by a world that has none.
"Lord, please allow us to convey your worth and beauty in all things in a way that is both referent and childlike. Lord, keep our hearts from ever being lift up to lesser things. Amen."

Homeschool Letters Y & Z

Here are the final 2 weeks of our journey through the alphabet using "Tot School Printables". We are currently on week 2, letter B, with our new curriculum "Animal ABCs". Jordyn is more interested in tracing letters than ever before. I will use her interest to my advantage in the weeks to come. I hope to establish correct tracing habits early, before she has a chance to create her own way to trace the letter 'B' for example. I have found the ipad to be a very useful tool in teaching her how to trace letters. We are loving our other new curriculum "All About Reading (Prelevel)". Also, our new puppet friend that visits us, 'Ziggy the Zebra,' is probably the highlight of our school day. The only downside is that, for the last 2 weeks, anytime Ziggy has to go back 'home' Jordyn has an absolute meltdown.


Letter Z

These PJs say My favorite letter is ZZZZZZZ !!
