A Typical Tuesday

I just wanted to take a quick moment to share what we did today because I really enjoyed it and I actually felt like we accomplished more than just chores. Ha. 
I mean, don't get me wrong, the chores are essential. 
But sometimes I feel like it's 10 o'clock before we even finish the "before breakfast" chores and then by the time breakfast is over or the chores we skipped are then done, it's lunch time! 
Where did my morning go?

Yesterday we didn't do much "real" school but we spent the entire morning on obedience. 
We played a LOT of games and it left me feeling more accomplished than I have in a while. 
But that's another post for another time. 

This week we've been talking about Abraham and today we were emphasizing how God promised Abraham more descendants than there are stars in the sky.
And Abraham believed Him.
(Genesis 15:1-8 and then we read Genesis 18:1-10)

This was the project. 
Very simple, but very fun. 
A tent made from an index card colored with crayons and folded in half. 
Then taped to a black piece of paper that you decorated with "stars". 
The stars we made from cotton balls dipped in white paint. 
I added the lesson in silver crayon. 

Gman on the left, SuperWy on the right.
SuperWy enjoyed the paint. A lot.

Emma's! She even drew Abraham and Sarah in the tent. :) 

And just for fun ... 
we made the letter C with blocks. 

This is George's 

And Clara's 

And afterwards SuperWy made a train. 

Now I just need to keep this motivation every day!
