Slowing down


Hello, dear friends!

I grew to appreciate Pinterest more recently, as I find lots of useful information there. At first I thought it was mostly inspiring pictures... But recently I discovered Spiritual lessons for kids, encouragement for mothers. A few months ago I found a great exercise routine which changed my life a lot. I enjoy working out for 40 minutes and my body gets rid of stress.

After the 25th of December life is slowing down. As I have mentioned before, we started homeschooling our oldest children since last August. My oldest son, Yegor (6th grade), has passed his 2 last exams, this totals 5 yearly exams: Biology, Geography, English, Social Studies and Math. He mostly studied on his own with a bit of my help and encouragement, except for the math, he needed his father's help to prepare thoroughly. Timothy (2d grade) has passed 3 yearly exams: Science, Math and PE. He did very well for his age and temperament.



During Christmas season I want to give lots of cards, but my time is very limited, so this year I made lost of small cards with the Bible verses from Isaiah I quoted in my previous blogpost. I love these promises of the birth of Jesus, the names He would be called. During Christmas it is good to revisit them and I reminded myself I should not assume everyone knows them. So I printed them out and made these cute little cards. I gave them all away today after the church service.



This is all our family skiing at the near-by pine forest. I am so thankful for the beautiful weather, fresh air and sparkling snow. December feels much better compared to November.

Thank you for visiting!

Maria

Que foto linda! Deve ser muito bom ver neve e tempo frio. Na minha cidade é calor de mais de 30 g raus. Um sol lindo e muito quente. Moro em Governador Valadares - Brasil.
Foi muito bom conhecer seu blog.
Feliz 2015 para você e toda sua familia.
