Now that the Christmas tree is down, we have been getting creative again in our fort building. Joash really enjoys hiding out in the caves and showing them off of Daddy when he comes home from milking.
This one uses the space behind the chair and the couch cushions.
We have also been hiding out in Romans! We are two weeks into our memorization project and things are going well. I have been enjoying it quite a bit. It is so good to hide these words in your heart. I also really like having a whole week to learn the verses. It doesn't feel like there is a crazy amount of pressure to memorize, but by the end of the week, it is there. By doing a little bit every day, it adds up to a whole lot.
One of the surprises of this was that Joash is memorizing little bits as well. I was so blessed to hear him repeat the words, "Holy Scriptures" over and over again while grocery shopping the other day. It just proves how much is soaks in of what we say. Proves how important this can be to all of us. It proves how much he learns from us. It is humbly frightening, really.
"May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be please and acceptable to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."
