Our supplies were ready ....
so after a nice breakfast of apple oatmeal, we began ...
We discussed art by Joni Eareckson Tada -- and
allowing God to work through our hands as
we grow more artistic and creative.
We also discussed the worthlessness of
"I can't ....".
If you know Miss Tada's story, you'll
understand why "I can't ..."
just doesn't work.
We "played" with Oil Pastels for the first time ...
learning strokes and methods ...
getting the "feel" for them.
We'll spend our first Term working with Pastels.
Everyone started reading their new books ...
Mere Christianity (C.S. Lewis) is one
the "big kids" have begun.
The High School
Overall, it was a fantastic day.
The Cherubs are excited about a new year ...
well, at least about "most" subjects. HA !
Now we're off to run and play
for the rest of the afternoon ...
to get the "wiggles" out,
to run and jump and skip ...
and to relax.
How was your first day ?
