So, I was reading ahead in The Hiding Place and have decided that the boys aren’t quite ready for the content of the book yet. We will be reading Jotham’s Journey by Arnold Ytreeide instead. Jotham’s Journey is the first in a series of books written for the Advent season. One of the moms in my support group highly recommended it and so far it is wonderful! I think the kids can relate better to this book since the main character is a ten year old boy. Plus, it helps prepare our hearts for the true meaning of Christmas! I’ll finish reading The Hiding Place myself and maybe we can read it together when the boys are older.
Both boys said their verse from memory today :). We had Bible time, went over this week’s vocabulary words, completed several workboxes, went to guitar practice, and played tennis.
