Braggin' On My Boys!

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary! They will walk and not faint.-- Isaiah 40:31

This was a work weekend for our boys.  My husband has decided to landscape our front yard.  I love watching Scotty father our young men.  He leads by example.  He models what he wants done and then he affirms while instructing.  It was so hot out and yet they completed the entire first phase!  Go Boys!

Strategic Seth

If you've followed my blog for any length of time then you know that we are strong believers in strengths based homeschooling.  Seth and Jake are not officially old enough to take their tests yet but I find myself constantly watching, observing and guessing.

I am almost positive that our Seth has Strategic in his top "5".  It could be his #1.  He is the child who loves to figure things out and put them together.  Give him a jigsaw puzzle and you won't see him again until it's completed. 

Seth's handle bars were stripped on his bike.  His younger brothers tire rim is bent.  So after thinking it over he used his brothers bike to fix his handle bars and now they are sharing one working bike, instead of looking at two broken ones. 

Our good friend Angie Wicker gave his older brother a circuit board and it was Seth who put it together.  He worked diligently for hours until he had it lighting up, making noises and moving gears.
