May 15. 6:00 p.m. and raining fairly hard. A little rain during the night last night but not anywhere near as much as the night before. Some small rains within the daylight hours of this cloudy day.
It was a busy day in school. After praying and reviewing verses in Bible class, we started learning, “More About Jesus.” I gave them copies of the music with the English words and had each section tell for the first line of the song what their starting notes would be and when they would stay on the same note or go up and down. I am glad to see that they are finally understanding a little bit about reading music. Then we practiced the melody a couple times before starting to learn the bass and tenor. Didn’t get to the alto today, but promised we would do that on Monday.
The students had a reading lesson to finish up in phonics class and a new phonics lesson to do, learning about the schwa sound. In the next class, they enjoyed playing a math game before finishing the math lesson they started yesterday. We took time to learn about finding averages before they could finish that part of the lesson. Then they had their spelling quiz, after which they reread the history lesson they had read yesterday and we discussed the lesson together and looked at maps. Before they went home, they counted the money that they have made in the past couple months and made up a list of things for Daddy to get in town for them to sell. Most of their sale items are sold out.
So we had a late lunch and late nap. After nap, I checked the sentences on their spelling quizzes, finished up next week’s lesson plans, and then worked on the ministry updates.
George was here cutting firewood most of the day. Daddy was busy a good part of the day trying to work out flight arrangements for the coming shopping trip to and from town. It is almost impossible to get a flight anymore.
Please pray for Dad to be able to get a flight to and from town and to be able to have transportation while he is in town. Thanks.
