Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Real Life

This week is "Flag Week" at the Edwards' home. We are learning about the War of 1812, President Madison and First Lady Dolley Madison, Francis Scott Key and his Star-Spangled Banner anthem, and Old Glory herself. The kids love all the history stories, but putting their new-found knowledge into their own words seems to put the knowledge into long-term memory. We relied on "What You Should Know About The American Flag" by Earl P. Williams, Jr. for flag details and protocols.

Hope asked me to put her paragraph about the American flag on the blog.
