Caitlin Earns a Kindle

At 6 years old, Caitlin is growing as a reader, striving to catch up with her older brother.   As an incentive to keep pushing forward in reading, we told Caitlin she would get a special reward when she finished a series of graduated readers and a big book of Bible stories.  She pressed on and got the prize at last - her very own Kindle, with a snazzy pink case, at that.  Now she won't have to battle with her older brother for reading time on the Kindle :-)

Latin and Legos

As a reward for finishing all the lessons in his Latin book, Joshua got a (long-awaited) Lego prize.  I say learning Latin is a reward in itself but for Joshua, the hope of Legos sweetened the deal and kept up the motivational level.

Homeschool 2015

Here are just a few pics I took of Sun helping Joshua and Caitlin with their homeschool work, to give you a flavor for what Monday to Friday looks like for them.

Goodbye Chickens

For the past couple of years, our family has raised chickens as part of homeschooling for the kids.  We have all come to enjoy the chickens, despite the upkeep they require.  Joshua has written his own eBook about chicken raising and had been trying to train one of the chickens (whom he named "Champion").  Unfortunately, we recently had to give up our chickens after our neighbor complained about them to our landlord (who is a relative of our neighbor).  We were all really sad to see them go, as they had become part of our life here.  And they were giving us 6-7 fresh eggs per day. 

We are thankful to God for the opportunity to have the chickens and are all agreed that we'd definitely like to keep them again in the future, if we have the opportunity.  Please see below for several pictures from our last day with our chickens.
