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.

USO Night: Truth Treasure Hunters Celebrate

Hope stands next to her "The War in the Pacific" poster.
Sydney stands next to her "The Battles of Europe" poster.

The Truth Treasure Hunters, our Tapestry of Grace Year 4 group, celebrated the completion of Unit 2 with a "USO Night" party. The kids presented the Armed Forces Medley, read the Franklin D. Roosevelt speech declaring war after the Pearl Harbor attack by the Japanese, gave individual presentations, and sang White Christmas.

Tapestry of Grace curriculum encourages holding unit celebrations. It is a way to cap off nine weeks of study, give the kids a sense of accomplishment, provide them with a goal ("You'll be reading this at celebration; make sure you do a nice job."), and share their work with Dad and grandparents.

We used to have unit celebrations with just our family, although we didn't get it done every quarter. This year, with two other families in our Truth Treasure Hunters group, celebrations are even more rewarding.

Sydney shows Grandma Edwards her work.
Lane looks through a World War II book with Dad and Grandpa Edwards.

This is so cool!

Next year will you do year 1?

Hi Pam! I just checked email before turning in--it looks like you just posted.

Yes, we're doing Year 1 next year, which covers Creation to the Fall of Rome. Quite the switch after finishing Year 4 in April with the Clinton Presidency and the Post-9/11 world! Major rewind over the summer.
