We're back! Since our Classical Conversations class had a break we decided to take the week off as well. We still did some reading and copy work (and math at the request of my Little Toughie) but we took a break and instead enjoyed diving into non-homeschooling books. I even had a chance to catch up on a little bit of my own reading.
Week 15 led us to the story of David and Goliath in our Bible Study. This is one of my daughter's favorite stories, but she has never learned what happened after that. While that is one of the more well known stories of David, my daughter was surprised to hear that he had become a king and that he wrote a lot of the Psalms.
As we start Week 16, she'll learn more about David's love for God and his obedience (and disobedience) to Him. She'll learn how forgiving and just our Father is. She always asks intriguing questions as I'm reading these Bible stories to her and I pray she keeps them in mind as she gets older and encounters her own "Goliath".
That's all I have for this week. I know it's not much. We're just getting back into the groove of things after taking a week off. My daughter is starting to read more, taking in words every where we go and telling me what they are. She's even writing me little love notes, trying her very best to spell the words without my help. It's great to see the progress she's making each day.
Have a great week!
