April 27. Up and at ‘em early this morning. Heard rain before 5:00, and it was still raining when we got up but stopped before 7:00. The day was mostly cloudy.
While I was waiting for school to start, I wrote in the answers on my copy of the English test that I printed last night and then started proofreading the next history unit. Only six students were here on time for school. Four came within the next five minutes, and two were quite late. After we sang, I had them translate two verses - I Thessalonians 5:16,17. It didn’t take long at all - they were very simple verses, but simple verses is a good place for them to start practicing. The next one will be a little harder Maybe we could even sing them to the tune of “Rejoice in the Lord Always.”
In science class, they were awed by the pictures of the stars which I took to class and showed them. Then I read to them a bit about measuring distance to the stars by light years and tried to explain that. It is mind boggling. We actually had done the lesson on stars a couple weeks ago, but I had found the pictures and wanted to show them. After that, we read the new lesson which was on weather.
This afternoon I just had to grade Sunny’s and Graham’s math. Then I fixed a meat pie for supper.
Sunny and Graham are here this evening grading the rest of todays’ work before they do the dishes and have their computer lesson.
“35Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 37And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.” John 9:35-38
April 28. Praise the Lord for a mostly sunny day today. It is raining a little bit this evening. Thania has been here since 3:30 checking school lessons. She also had to answer the door a few times while Lewis was shaving and washing and I was making cookies.
“9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” John 10:9-11
