Its official, we are half way through the 2014-2015 school year! Our last week of school for the year 2014 was both fun and relaxing. Check out our Week 16 Homeschool Highlights!
Our Bible story this week was entitled “The Shepherds Find Baby Jesus”. Our Bible verse was “The Lord has done great things for us” Psalm 126:3. We learned about the shepherds who were watching their flocks the night Jesus was born. They were so excited that they quickly followed the star to the place where baby Jesus was. They were so overjoyed and grateful that the angels delivered the message of Jesus’s birth to them that they told every one that they came in contact with. The boys learned that when God does something amazing for them, they should share the good news with others, just like the shepherds shared the news about Jesus’s birth.
To reinforce this weeks Bible story, we made hand print shepherds and angels! The boy had a great time making these and they turned out better than I expected. So simple and so cute!
A quick trip to the Dollar Tree before our homeschool co-op Christmas party. My kindergartner was loving these antlers. They had a great time at the party.

A super huge smile on a super cute three year old 🙂
All done! Great job!
Our kindergartner is a states and capitals whiz kid! He knows the captials of all fifty states, I’m so proud 🙂
Here he is finishing up his Food Groups book for our health and nutrition mini unit.
We had our county homeschool review this week and we passed with flying colors! The reviewer could not believe how much information our kindergartner knows. I was so relieved, and her response reassured me that we are doing the best thing for our family. Im so grateful to God for allowing me the opportunity to teach my children from home. Now, I’m walking into the new year with deeper faith, a renewed sense of purpose and even more excitement about homeschooling. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you next year!
