Today has been my favorite day of Prairie School so far ! Our Little House In the Big Woods chapter today was about Christmas !!!! My most favorite time of the year !!!
We opened with prayer and devotion !!!Our devotion was about jealousy ... Laura received a beautiful rag doll , red mittens , and a peppermint stick !!!while the other children did not receive a doll ... It was customary during this time period for the smaller children to receive a special toy such as a doll ! the older children were not jealous of Laura's gift !!! They to had received a special gift as this in the past ...
Our Scripture verse came from the book of Proverbs 14:30
A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
We learned all about lung function , rabies the cause and effect ,we reviewed similes, worked on some math , had our spelling test , Sissy recited Proverbs 91:1-2 ,then we spent the afternoon trying our hands at the molasses in the snow recipe from the little house cook book !!!! My favorite part of my day was when I heard the excitement in her voice about what she had been learning !!! I knew with out a shadow of a doubt we had choosen the right curriculum for this school year God is good !!!
