September 29. Praise the Lord for a dry day, a little more sunshine, and a little more warmth. God is gracious!
In Bible class this morning, the students started practicing two more songs to teach to the church congregation - “Jesus Loves Me,” and “The God of the Impossible.” Then we started learning Romans 10:13 before doing a music lesson. They are learning now about the treble and bass clefs and more about the letter names of the lines and spaces of the staff.
They finished up their phonics workbook today. It was a review lesson. All but one of them either did very poorly or very well on that lesson. The other one was in between.
Then, after a little review, they had their chapter eight math test, and most of them did quite well on that.
After nap this afternoon, I still had to grade spelling lessons and then get things ready for classes tomorrow. Put the rest of the pumpkin on to cook for supper. Daddy had cut all of it up several days ago, but it didn’t all fit in the pan. So half of it went into the fridge raw to be cooked later (later was today). While that was cooking, I practiced keyboard, and then practiced again after supper. I need to get the songs down well for our closing program. It is only seven weeks away. Two or three of the songs will be sung acapella, but we still need to use the music for practicing. We have lots of props to make too so looks like we’ll be pretty busy the rest of the school year.
“13And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.” Revelation 5:13,14
September 30. The Lord graciously sent us another sunny, dry day.
Woke up early this morning so got up and made myself a few pancakes since I didn’t do that on Sunday.
This morning, we finished up the music lesson in Bible class. The students seem to be catching on better now to some simple music theory. Afterward, we reviewed the Bible lesson we finished last week, as they will have a test Thursday morning on the Bible lesson and music lesson.
They finished up the last lesson in their reading workbook too. Tomorrow they will have a phonics test, and then we’ll review for the reading test which will probably be Thursday. Then Friday they will get new phonics and reading workbooks.
In math class, they started learning how to read and write numbers in the millions; and in science class, they started a lesson on trees.
This afternoon, there were a number of things to get ready for school tomorrow, as well as finishing the job of punching holes in the new Bible school lessons for this evening (did half of that job before school this morning), and practicing keyboard until about 4:30. Then there was pizza to make for supper and date-oatmeal cookies to make for Daddy’s snacks.
Daddy is feeling pretty weak this evening so there is no Bible school. Both of us are feeling a bit nauseated so have just taken some activated charcoal. Hopefully that will help whatever the problem is.
A few people had come early for Bible school, but Daddy sent them home. Some of the school students stayed around to study. Apekio stayed a little while too and came in to talk.
“15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Revelation 6:15-17
