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.

Overheard at the Edwards'

Last night after our family bedtime prayer, our boys ran off to their room. A few minutes later Mr. Edwards heard them talking too much, so he went to investigate. Pretty soon I heard him say--

"No calling and no texting! Put your cell phones away!"

He returned to the living room and we both collapsed on the sofa in laughter.

"Toby told me he was texting [the neighbor boy] Matthew!"

"Matthew?" I asked. Mr. Edwards nodded.
"At least we don't have to pay for the phone contract!"
"No doubt!"

All four of our kids have outfitted themselves with paper cell phones, complete with a phone company logo, a keyboard drawn on, and a screen.  They were carrying them around all day yesterday, or tucking them carefully in their pockets. Toby especially seemed to be receiving calls and carrying on phone conversations with his paper phone held to his ear throughout the day.

That is funny!
At first I was thinking "NO!! They can't have cell phones already!" :) (Sadly not unheard of).
I should have known better that they would have been clever enough to make them out of paper. :)
Great story, Amy! :)
