Do any of you own one of these very
cool thin line savvy dictionaries?
If you don't I just wanted to share this with you.
My son received one for his 12th birthday from a friend we
made whilst in Williamstown last year.
I had never laid eyes on one!
They are fabulous!
While I am here, I'll take an extra minute to tell you we have some people who are really, really, keen to buy our property and I am really trying to stay calm, cool & collected, but I am finding putting those three C's into practise is quite difficult as I am a human and not a robot!
We are waiting upon the Lord knowing that He has an appointed time and we just have to rest, and keep the place clean & ready!
We are into our 4th week of AO year 3 and loving it. Children are so amazing in how they adapt to a routine.
We start our days with Training Hearts, Training Minds - based on the shorter Catechism and we are loving this devotion. My children read the scriptures for that day and it is a great opening to learning.
After reading two chapters of 'The Heroes' by Charles Kingsley, I have decided not to go any further until I can understand Miss Mason's reasons for teaching Greek Mythology and I have replaced this book with 'Heaven's Heroes', one I had in my library.
We have been enjoying listening to The Wiggles version of the 'Gypsy rover' (AO3's term folksong). I have always loved Greg's vocals and he really sings this lovely, plus you can really understand the words.
In my own time (which is after 9pm) I am reading 'Loving our kids on purpose' and have found some answers to what I have been praying about. It came to a big shock to me to have discovered that my children's attitudes and problems are not my problems.
HA, I can hear people say, 'I could of told you that', but you see, I have felt the weight of responsibility when my children quarrel, have attitudes, answer back, not obey immediately to my requests. I have given them some control when I am quick to anger and yell at them, and they know that.
Just making them accountable to their wrong choices has made me so much more relaxed in my soul, Praise God!
I could go on, but this post was only meant to be short & sweet.
So I'll love and leave you for another day to go and start preparing dinner - Satay chicken with rocket salad.
