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.

Truth Treasure Hunters Celebrate!

We capped off our first quarter of the school year with a Truth Treasure Hunters Celebration. Our Tapestry of Grace Year 4 co-op gathered with dads and grandparents to celebrate all we've learned in our study of 1900-1938.

Reciting "In Flanders Fields" together.

Charles Lindbergh (aka Toby)

The display tables held the kids Tapestry workbooks and the projects that we made: Faberge eggs, Wright flyers, periscopes, and our volcano. The kids recited In Flanders Fields, explained who they were dressed as, and shared something that they wrote or made during the quarter. Several of the students read essays, some showed pictures or projects, and some did both.

Shirley Temple

Our evening had a Hawaiian flair, since we began our year learning the history and geography of Hawaii. The students came dressed as a person in history from the first 38 years of the twentieth century. Our group had Helen Keller as a college student, Eric Liddell, Charlie Chaplin, a flapper from the Roaring Twenties, Babe Ruth, two Shirley Temples, two Princess Anastasias, and Charles Lindbergh.

Babe Ruth

Thanks to the other Truth Treasure Hunters families for making this a big success. On the way home, our kids talked about the coming quarter. The celebration had a way of helping them mark the time and feel a sense of accomplishment.
