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.

Picture Study on a Pumpkin

With a nod to autumn, we painted our picture studies on the pumpkins we brought home from the pumpkin patch field trip that we took Monday. This week our fine arts focus is the artwork of Modernist Georgia O'Keefe. After reading about O'Keefe in Sister Wendy's Story of Painting, we browsed through the O'Keefe collection on Sydney decided to paint "A Sunflower from Maggie" on her pumpkin, Hope chose "Jimson Weed" and Lane discarded the idea of painting a flower and settled on "Chama River, Ghost Ranch." All three paintings were done by O'Keefe in the 1930s.
