(To check out past years of bluebonnet photos, click here)

This year the bluebonnets were not nearly as plentiful as last year (at least not in our area), but we were able to find at least a small patch for photos. It is so amazing to me how much the kids change in only a year!

Memory Verses

A little while back I wrote about using the Charlotte Mason Scripture Memory System. We finally got started, and I’ve been very excited with the system so far. This is not only a great way for the kids to learn memory verses, but for me to learn memory verses as well!  I thought I’d share a couple of videos of the kids saying a couple of memory verses.

Troy usually speaks a little clearer, but he was super excited/crazy because I was videoing him. Here’s Troy saying James 1:22: “But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

And, here’s Ella saying Ephesians 6:1: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”
