The younger children and I are just back from a trip, out of town, to take Grandma to a reunion.
An opportunity to enjoy the sea, for the first time, since last summer.

I sat and read, between chasing a toddler and finding dry clothes for people who paddled further than intended. The children enjoyed the sand.

The younger children were able to see the house where Grandma, and Daddy, used to live. They hadn't seen this before.
Then, lunch in the country.

Now we are home. Thankful and tired. Hopefully, ready for the Lord's Day and then to tackle the last few days of term.

I'm thinking more and more that education isn't just linked to terms and bookwork but am more and more challenged by the enormity of what is involved.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deuteronomy 6v4-7

  1. Great post! Teaching children to walk in God's way is quite an honor. I wish I could do it over. Thank God for His awesome grace! Many Blessings!
