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.

Faberge Eggs

Since we all learned about the Russian Revolution and the history and geography of Russia before and immediately after WWI in our Tapestry of Grace homeschools, our Truth Treasure Hunters co-op gathered to decorate eggs as an homage to Faberge. One of our moms, Mrs. G., found an excellent way to make beautiful jeweled eggs that was manageable for all ages.

We capped off our co-op meeting with a screening of Charlie Chaplin in "The Rink." It turns out that even eighty years later Chaplin is hilarious. "The Rink" kicked off our home studies this week and next of the Jazz Age, the Roaring Twenties, and other history from the 1920s. What a joy it is to study along with two other families. We all "do" Tapestry in our own style at home, but join together for projects, book reports, and sharing time and discover that we learned much of the same things, but that we can teach each other as well.

Thank you to the other Truth Treasure Hunter families. We appreciate you!
