Little Hands to Heaven: Unit 21
The first time I went through Beyond it was our first year homeschooling. I am appreciating it so much more this second time through. Beth is fully engaged during the history readings which is partly due to the wonderful history selections, but also having completed Little Hearts for His Glory. She has matured a lot through schooling and we have had some wonderful discussions.
s. The bottom of the steps was the jail because this was where the Pilgrims who refused to worship God the way King James was requiring went. Depending on the roll of the dice she either obeyed the king or chose to worship the way the way she felt the Bible said she should. She ended up in jail...and was quite happy about it! We talked about how jail is not usually a place you want to be, but if you are there because you are following God, then it is okay.
She is illustrating the poem Uphill here. Using both the upper and lower guides at the same time has given me such an appreciation for the full Heart of Dakota curriculum. Everything is intentional and there is no such things as busy work with this guide. I love how the poems and Scripture study always relate to our history readings. The connections between disciplines are seamless. This year is truly starting out wonderfully for Beth!
We had some really fun moments this week and this was one of my favorites. Beth was working on a vocabulary page when she said, "Hey guys! Come quick! You have to see this!" I love seeing my girls excited about learning, discovering together, and sharing with one another.
How was your week?
