What's in the Bible

I have been eyeing the What's in the Bible dvd collection for months now. Little guy and I watched every clip available and fell in love. We finally purchased the entire old testament series (9 dvds). We have not watched all of them yet, but we are so glad we got them!

What's in the bible gives a brief review of each book of the bible. It is fun and includes lots of great music. As adults our favorite part is the information that is not in the books. They cover some really tough topics and make the answers so clear and very understandable. They don't beat around the bush or make things long and complicated like many studies we have done. Our understanding of christianity has improved quite a bit.

Some of the topics they have coverd are what are the books of the bible, who wrote them, why can we trust them, ect. Also tough stuff like how old is the earth. Last night we watched disk 7, yes, without the little guy because we like it so much that we watch it without him too, and learned why the Jews were called Jews once the story of Esther hit and we both sat there going "OooooOOOooh!" You just have to love when something suddenly clicks in your mind.

We are really enjoying the series! This is by far the best bible related study we have ever used. It is great for the whole family. The charatcters are fun and the songs are catchy. Our favorite song is the Genesis song with The Bently Brothers (clipped below). If you want to get your own copy you can click the link and save 20%!

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
