It's March! {HSMJ Week 5}

Sunrise at Foxhill in Beremboke, VIC

 In my life this week…
  • I've always wanted to write the bible and many years ago when Timothy and Jane were younger I started but I never finished even one book...  There was a family who challenged each of their children to write out the whole bible word for word during their teen years and this really touched my heart. Candace over at His Mercy is New has a challenge this month to write out the book of Philippians along with a FREE printable.  It's been good to slow down with the Word and begin a new tradition.   
  • I found a new homeschool Mom on IG (Follow Heather @lifeofahomeschoolmom) who has a photo challenge for the month March that looks like fun.  
  • Amy from over at Homeschool Blogging Connection also has an IG challenge for the month of March and three participants will win a $10 amazon gift card!
  • Needless to say these three challenges have kept me on my toes this week ...
  • On Monday we went up to Foxhill to house-sit for a few days for one Paul's work colleagues. It's always so good to go up there and enjoy the sound of silence.  There is no phone coverage for our network so we are phone-less and without internet while there.  
  • I have decided to re-read some of the books I first read when I started home educating years ago before the internet became my main source of information.  I've taken For The Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay off the shelf again.  Let me just say WOW.  There is so much richness I had forgotten.  I have been inspired to write out quotes in a journal which in turn is helping me slow down and bask in the excellent information I have found here.
