Look What We Grew!

083 Joey and I were just discussing the fact that I use the word "me" when I am selfishly trying to take credit for something that is really "we" and then I use the word "we"  when most of the time it was just all Joey and I selfishly try to take credit for as well.  Hey, I feel like it is a cute endearing quality of mine, I am sure Joey doesn't quite feel the same.  SOOOOOO it should be, "Look what Joey grew!"  He is our master landscaper and is always so good help the kids plant new fruits and vegetables in our garden!  Who knew such a great watermelon could grow in Las Vegas?!  Good job Joey!

We had a really busy school day today.  After Sylvia's dance class Luke and Isabel had a science class with other homeschooled kids at a fellow homeschooler's house.  They learned about classification of animals and had a really good time in the group.  After lunch they worked on their school lists and then had their running class at 3:45.

Tonight for Family Home Evening, Joey had Luke and Isabel pick out a parable to read and talk about from this lovely book, Parables: And Other Teaching Stories by Robert L. Millet and James C. Christensen.  James C. Christensen is usually known for his fantasy paintings and so the pictures in this book are certainly more down to earth compared with his other work, but still have his colorful and graceful style.  After a page of the actual parable from the Bible, Robert L. Millet breaks down the story and clearly describes the meaning.
