Although I am very happy to see that his interest in learning to read has been aroused, it does make my mornings much busier. I now have three cubs that need my attention. Scrap that. Four cubs.
With his older brother busy doing schoolwork, cub #4 now needs his momma to entertain him. Which of course doesn't work. Him sitting on my lap works for a few minutes, but the constant touching, asking of questions, and noise, makes my brain go...
So I take a deep breath. A REALLY BIG BREATH. Pray for patience.
And then focus once again on the joy of the moment. One cub at a time.
Speaking of one cub at a time, I had realized a couple of weeks ago that teaching each cub individually worked much better. After the time change, it seems like we have been slacking with staying on schedule. So it just means getting our breakfast done earlier so that we can get to the school table sooner.
On Monday, the cubs and I started learning memory verses. Our daily devotions gives us a new verse each day.
I told the cubs that if they learn five verses, they would get a prize. Nothing like a little motivation.
Today marks the fifth verse.
'Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge.' 1 Timothy 6:20
Now I just have to figure out a prize...
