Today we had an extra student in the Heidmann Academy.
Lisa joined us in the morning,
and even spent some quality time studying from the highly recommended book,
Understanding the Scriptures
by Scott Hahn,
from the Didache Series.
Since it has also been used for some of our lessons in RCIA, it will be very helpful for Lisa to go through and really delve deeper into the Word.
Laurent was reading from the Bible today as well, but her assignment,
the book of Genesis,
was actually part of her Great Books Discussions curriculum.
Geneva spent a lengthy and very annoying period working on her Language Arts.Â We used the Lifepac series for several years, and are finishing up the last few volumes before making the switch back to a more
Classical Homeschooling approach.
Jacob was much more interested in reading this chapter on
the First Written Records
The History Of The Ancient World
than he was in the writing assignment that followed it.
Also, though a tad late,
tonight I finally finished Lisa’s graduation present,
ROY G. BIV
I chose this color scheme for Lisa because I know her well,
and as precious a gem as she is,
only jewel tones suffice to express her vivacity.
(She likes it.)
The afternoon projects included some computer time,
as well as some exercises in culinary excellence.
Slow cook till tender:
- Chicken Breasts
- Orange Juice
- Shredded Carrots
- Finely Minced Onions
- Soy Sauce
- Worcestershire Sauce
When thoroughly cooked, add:
- Brown Sugar
- Pepper or Cracked Red Pepper to taste
One of my favorite salads.
Oh, I added pineapple chunks at the last minute.
Finally this evening,
after the four girls and Paul returned from a night time neighborhood walk,
they returned to find these
And finally, to complete my most productive day,
- Shakespeare in the back yard
- Oh, the Heidmannity…
