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.

Having a Capital Time at the Capitol

We visited Topeka and the Capitol building last week with our homeschool group. After reading John Steuart Curry: The Road Home, our kids were thrilled to see the giant Curry murals in the Capitol. After reading about John Brown and the Civil War, they were very interested in his giant portrait.

Our kids were amazed by the old cage elevator, the glass floor in the State Library, the House and Senate chambers, the murals, and the ceremonial office of the Governor. We stood on the first floor and gazed up at the inner dome at the top of the Rotunda. Our historic tour took us into both the House and the Senate and the dome tour took Hope and my husband up to the look-out at the top of the dome.

I've always loved the Kansas Capitol since the days my grandparents took me there just to walk around. It was great to be back.
