The Lord gave us a very pleasant, sunny morning. We were happy to be able to open windows in the classroom and in the house.
We had another visitor in school this morning. Betty said she would like to come to school too so she sat in on classes today to see how she would do. Francis was back too, but hasn’t said anything definite yet about becoming a full time student.
Today the students had a math test, and they all did quite well.
This afternoon, Betty cleaned out all the ditches and also made a ditch under the eaves of the meeting room addition. A lot of water collects there when we get a big rain.
“1For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.” Hebrews 10:1-4
March 11. Quite a bit of rain during the night and very, very foggy this morning. Back to cool weather again, although it was warm enough to let the fire out this afternoon.
Betty did not come to classes today. Francis is still coming and seems to be enjoying himself, but he hasn’t said anything yet about becoming a full time student. I will have to ask him and find out for sure by the end of this week as I need to order books for school next year.
The students had a Bible test today, and then we started the next lesson -- the first half of John 2. In phonics class, we re-read the story about Joseph’s brothers and the silver cup, and they answered the questions in their reading workbook. One of the “Do you think” questions was “Do you think that Benjamin will have to become Joseph’s servant?” All of them wrote “yes”, but they won’t find out the answer until they read the next lesson. They all seemed to enjoy the story about Seebo today in social studies class, especially the part about the fox in the well.
After nap today, I washed my hair. Then I cut up a popo for our snack and fixed myself a small dish of popo, banana, and almonds. There was lots of grading to do after that, plus recording grades and start getting ready for classes tomorrow.
I needed biscuits for supper, but didn’t have much time to make them so just made a small batch of dough and filled the few biscuits with cheese and tuna. They tasted good. After supper and dishes, there was laundry to do; and while clothes were washing, I got the notebooks of song sheets straightened up. When wash was done, I got my evening snack before sitting down here at the computer.
“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Hebrews 10:10
