Day 13: A Well Loved Book

After we say the Pledge of Allegiance and a morning prayer we read from two books to start our day of homeschooling.  One is The American Patriots Almanac by William H Bennett. The other is the book that Jake is reading from in the picture of the day for May 13, 2015.  It is a daily devotional book, called Stand A Little Taller, that you read a scripture in and then a comment from President Gordon B. Hinckley.  The fact that is falling apart says it all.  It is filled with words to live by!

In other news from Wednesday:  Jake (who is a Boy Scout) taught Mikael (who is a Cub Scout) how to take care of his bike which was the last thing he needed to learn in order to earn his Handyman pin.  

After that they rode their bikes around the parking lot at church and Jake was very proud of a skid park he made.

Then he rode his bike home from church.  It isn't that far away but it is off a four lane road so I kept pulling over to make sure he was okay.  I am an overprotective mother like that.

And Jake found this disgusting tick on Sadie.  So gross.
