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.

GRACE Family Night

Sydney in front of the "Pond Life" display
Hope in front of the "Pond Life" display
Hope and Sydney show us their artwork.
Lane shows us his favorite poem, "Cowboys"

On Tuesday night we had our home school co-op year-end program. Both sets of grandparents were on hand to see the Edwards Academy kids participate in the event. There were on-stage presentations as well as a gallery displaying their work throughout the year.

Lane presented a show and tell item, a picture of his pet Nemo. We practiced together what he would say about Nemo, "This is a picture of me and my pet fish Nemo. He is a blue Beta fish." In the nervousness of the actual presentation, however, Lane merely said, "This is my pet Nemo!" and nearly fled form the microphone!

Sydney and Hope presented push-ups for a P.E. demonstration. Lane presented the "sit and reach." Lane also was a part of the poetry class recitation of "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear.

We enjoyed seeing all the art, the lapbooks about Asia that Hope and Sydney made, the books Hope and Sydney had on display, and Lane's poems.

Lane's couplet poem is inspired by Lois Lenski's Mr. Small books.

Cowboys
by Lane
Cowboy Small puts on the saddle.
Then he rounds up the cattle.

Thanks to all the GRACE moms who served as teachers this year!
