iSonto #1

Isonto is a Zulu word for both week and Sunday, so Dave suggested it as the title of this little update I plan (God willing) to put out each Sunday. The intent is that following the same format will allow me to complete it in half an hour or less.  So, this last week, this is what went on... 

Elnathan was happy to do his alphabet puzzle. I bought this due to his increasing interest in letters. I have loved using the skills with teaching sounds that I learned as a teacher's aid.

Natey's memory verse was "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God" from Matthew 5:9.

Mercy thought her brother was the funniest person in her world.

From garden to tummies . . . 

Garlic was one flavour of the week as we have all had infections of one type and another. We made some very potent garlic bread! We are still eating the 30+ bulbs we harvested in December. Now it is planting time again and we have been able to plant our own cloves! We put in about 25 on Saturday, although with Dave's job contract ending in August we don't know if we will be here for harvest.

A book we enjoyed together was My ABC Bible Memory Verses. Natey has been doing really well with the verses.

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from the sweet Charlotte Mason Companion  I have been reading while feeding for the past several weeks. What a treasure of educational vision this is!

We are thankful for the washing machine that washes all those dirty nappies and vomited on clothes and sheets!

Good to see you are back on every so often Sherrin. We use ours as a family diary for this stage of our lives- you may look back on your blogs in years to come and be grateful that you managed to find the time. Just imagine the children reading through the posts when they are old enough to have fun reading homework:)

Hi Gayle,
Thanks for your encouragement!
Thankfully this new way of blogging is proving to be quick and I can do little bits here and there, so hopefully I'll be able to keep it up. Right now Elnathan loves the scrapbook albums, but I am sure when he is older he could enjoy reading the blog :).
