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.

Bible Quizzing

Last Saturday Hope's Bible Quizzing team took second place for the T&T Book One competition! We were so proud of her for competing. 

AWANA Bible Quizzing is a competition for kids from churches in the surrounding area. Each church that participates fields one or more teams for each Truth & Training book level. Book One had about two dozen kids or more competing. Scores are awarded individually and to teams.
Hope, like all the competitors, competed in the paddle quiz and the written test. The written test had ten questions and the paddle quiz also had ten questions. I didn't get to watch her take the written, but the paddle quiz took place in the church's auditorium. Quizzers sat on the stage and were instructed to look steadily at their paddle box as they listened carefully to each multiple-choice question. Then--"Paddles Up!"  Hope did so well! I think I was more nervous than she was! 

She only missed one of the paddle quiz questions. It is agonizing when you miss one, because after the judge announces the proper answer, you must bravely hold up your incorrect answer until the judge instructs everyone to put their paddles away. (This gives the judges time to record all the scores.)

Hope's team did very well and some of the questions were pretty tricky! Each question was multiple choice and derived from the first half of the AWANA T&T Book One. Kids needed to remember their Scripture references, recognize which Scriptures support the various T&T Questions (this is similar to a catechism), and know all the "Word Wise" definitions.

Hope's already looking forward to competing next year. Meanwhile, my sweet (and shy) Sydney is considering it...
