The Jobes Leave Today

Jobes Prayer Card FrontV2God has really blessed us by giving us another family to relate to and go through pre-deployment with. Today they are all climbing on a plane and starting the journey to Nosy Mitsio, a tiny island off the coast of Madagascar in Africa. They will be joining their team at Africa Inland Mission's headquarters in Georgia after their flight today. They are going on a TIMO mission which focuses on training them to be long term missionaries. They will be there for just over two years.

The process of getting there is long and arduous. There are 8 young children among the group which will likely make the journey more difficult. After quite a lot of travel and some stops for training on how to survive in a third world country, they will finally be greeted with Nosy Mitsio on the horizon in mid November.   nosy-mitsio After a week of staying with a family in their village, they will move into their new home. It is a sweet little hut and is ready and waiting for their arrival. It is a long road to get there though. Please join our family in praying for the Jobes, especially in these next three weeks before arriving at their home. 10626480_734039653648_7616873126465400419_n If you want to know more about the Jobes mission and follow their journey, you can visit their blog here:

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.
