Thanksgiving Holiday

Thanksgiving Holiday
We took the week of Thanksgiving off from school and focused mainly on workbooks, arts and crafts and worked through the COAH free activity pack. It was really a fun and relaxing week.

Tt Do-A-Dot
Scissor Practice

Color Matching

 Working on pattern completion, and with cute goober smile ;)

Large to Small Turkeys

 T is for Turkey number 1-10 puzzle, easy but fun-and for mom who is busy in the kitchen-a great distraction

  The boys enjoyed the day at Nana and Papas.

Holiday craft:
 Using tempura paint color pine cones with paint then roll them over a sheet of craft art paper. Then take a few leaves and paint around them to make a fun fall print.

Fall scrapbooking for your family trip to the farm/corn maze

Fall photo frame

Weaved placemats for the big dinner

Gobble Gobble, made these at playgroup

Owl bags to hold buckeye seeds we found on our outdoor explore trip. Actually it was just a walk around the block, but we still had fun and learned something new.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
