The Jesus Journal

My-Jesus-Journal-1000_largeToday we are back into the swing of things in our homeschool. We are doing six weeks on and one week off at the moment and last week was a very busy week of prepping for the next six weeks for me. Today we are starting a lot of new things thanks to our recent supplemental order from Amazon. I am most excited to be starting the Jesus Journal, from the folks at What's in the Bible.

We have had it for a while and tried it back before we moved. Jayne was a little young for it back then and we didn't make it through the whole thing. Now that he is older I am looking forward to giving it another try. Today is the perfect day to start as a lead up to Easter. If you think you want to try it, you can get the download version and still start today.

MyJesusJournalPreview_largeThis week we are talking about who Jayne is. Next week we will talk about who Jesus is. During holy week we will be remembering the cross. Week 4 will start on Easter Monday (here in Canada) and will be all about how we live a life in Christ. There are some fun bonus materials too and so we will do those the 5th week.

Our family has been big fans of What's in the Bible for a long time. We have the DVD volumes 1-13 which cover information from every book of the bible and the Why Do We Call it Christmas DVD. We also do the Everyday Emanuel book at Christmas. We have really enjoyed the depth that they share in such simple ways that our 7 year old can even understand it.

Well, I guess I better go get started! Have a great week!

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
