This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

A Science Experiment & an Argument

The science experiment:

Both boys were thrilled yesterday. Roo's science experiment included--get this...

Are you ready for it?

They had so much fun...

Still can't guess?

The experiment involved candy. Specifically eating candy. Oh joyful day!! And the text asked that you involve a classmate in the experiment.

Well, being homeschooled in a family of two obviously meant Boo was "the classmate." Candy for schoolwork. Who'd've thunk it???

The argument:

"Yes, you did."

"No, I didn't."

"Yes, you did. "

"No, I didn't."

"Yes, you did."

"No, I didn't."

"No, you didn't."

"Yes, I did! Wait!!!"

"See, I told you so!!"

Sigh...It's been a long few days.

When We Pray at Night

When we pray as a family at night before the boys go to bed we all have our personal thanks and petitions to add. The boys also have a Scripture verse that they say each night. They've said these verses for maybe six years now. I think they "get" it.

Roo, "As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15."

Boo, "I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You, O LORD, will keep me safe. Psalm 4:8."

Yup. That about covers it.
