Josh got a head of hair cut off! Now he looks like he's 15.

Josh after his hair cut  (:

Levi says "Mom"...."Mom"...."Mom"....constantly.   He says it so often that sometimes when I say what, he says, "Hi."   He didn't have anything to say, but "Mom" just keeps coming out, so he covers that up with a, "Hi."

Before Bible class this morning I went over a bit of the history for this week.  Luke and Josh both have their online history class today.  There are only about 5 people in the class and they are expected to interact and show that they know the material they read, answered their assigned questions, and have insight as much as possible.  The teachers give a grade for the class after each class.  We talked a little about feudalism (military/government relationships) and manorialism (political relationships).   We briefly discussed the three classes in the middle ages:  nobility, peasants and clergy.   Also, we reviewed primogeniture which  is the right, by law or custom, of the male firstborn to inherit the entire estate so that the land would not be split up and so that one son would continue to control the family land.  I heard Luke talking about primogeniture during his class today.

In Bible, our theme was from Gen 37;  God is working a wonderful plan for our lives, even when it doesn't seem like it.  Sometimes we have to go through bad situations before we get to the place God wants us.  Joseph had be sold as a slave before he could be the leader of the Egyptians.  

Caroline and Jesse and I got to discuss the book they've been reading, Robin Hood.  We also talked about plot, setting, characters, protagonist, antagonist.  Jesse is going to try to find the movie with Kevin Costner on Netflix so we can watch it.  It was so nice to be able to have time to talk about the book with them and discuss literary terms.  We also did grammar and that is going so well with them.  And, we had history with Sophia too.  We are starting to get to the Crusades.
