Crazy Busy Blustery Week

 The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has, of late, "gone crazy," specifically attacking churches. The response to the violence against burned churches has also been remarkable. Christians posted signs on their burned-out churches that read: "You burned our church, but we love you."
"So it's a great message of forgiveness," David says. "This makes many Muslims discover the reality of Christianity, and many of them come to know Jesus. ...
PictureSchool this week. I am more in love with Learn Math Fast Algebra everyday.
 It rocks. It works.
Lots of on-line work: Vocabulary/ Spelling City, French, IXL, and Rosie's.
We started Nancy Pearcy's Saving Leonardo.   The sub-title says it all: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning.

Biology, PreScripts and our newest math find: Logic Links.
Free reading (comic books are still weighing in heavily here), along with generous servings of Downton Abbey. O.k., o.k., it's not really school. But the kids and I have had a great time snuggling on the couch together and it's sparked tons of questions about history. Cub has about had it though since they killed off 2 of his fav characters.

The kids have been busy making stuff this week and my house shows it.
Cub made a suit of armor, shield and sword. More pics here.
*7  In Memoriam*
Our homeschooling community said good-bye to one of our "Dads" this week- the second in a year and a half. Both of them Godly, kind men who lived their faith, loved their families and did their work with integrity and fairness.
Our lives are richer for having known them and we rest in the assurance that we will see them again.
