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.

Rain in the Plain

A rainy start to summer.

It's pouring here today as well. Josh and Anna are sitting on his bed together watching Octonauts on the ABCforkids website and Abi is playing with the Lincoln Logs in the play room with a friend from church & school. It's Sam's day at child care, and Jeff has yet to bring him home. The place seems remarkably quiet... which makes up for the fact that I was up unable to sleep at 2am this morning as you may have noticed from WordswFriends.

Are the girls reading from Kindles or something else?

Lydia looks soooo big in that sidebar pic. I can't believe she is over a year old already.

Hope all is well.

I did notice that you were playing Words at unusual hours! So sorry about that.

Yes, Lydia is getting so grown up, although she's actually petite compared to peers. Yesterday she climbed the full flight of stairs--not a new skill but this time no one was behind her! Yikes. We got to her before she tumbled, thankfully.

The girls contributed some of their money and we made up the difference to give them Kindles for their birthday. Because our ebook purchases are shared between devices, they can both be reading from the same book. This will be helpful for school. It is amazing how many classics are public domain.

We are well, apart from some sniffles. :)

Aah, we just got over colds as well.

So how many devices can share a particular ebook download/purchase? Is is limited to three or five or something?

And more important, do Sydney and Hope (and yourself) like reading with them? I use my iPhone4 to read the Bible sometimes, but really only when I don't have my paper Bible for some reason. I prefer to use that if I can because I have all my notes in the margins, and my highlighting. But I am not sure that I would like to read all my books on a device. But then, I wouldn't have to worry about fitting large novels in my handbag, either. Mind you, it would have the advantage that Jeff wouldn't get so annoyed when I read late at night as I could read under the covers and he wouldn't see the book light on and there would be no noise of me turning pages...

Gotta go to dinner.
