Deuteronomy 28:2 (King James Version)

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God." This is my homeschooling blog. Some days my cup runnteh over with the joys of homeschoolong, some days it's spilling what can only be be described as thinly veiled insanity. Either way, it runneth over...

The hard lessons....

We lost tow chickens today. One of our chicks was dead when we woke up. It looked like the others smooshed it while the slept. The other disappeared shortly after breakfast. ..we suspect she became someone else's breakfast. Its a really sad thing for your kids to learn, and yet, its a valuable lesson as well. From the chicks they learned that being selfish and only caring about your own comfort hurts others around you. From the missing hen they learned that when you decide to not follow the rules, and stay inside the protection that the rules bring, you end up very sorry. The enemy is always waiting to gobble us up if we decide to step out form under the protect of the Holy Father. He doesn't tell us to listen to him because he wants to hurt us...he only wants to love and protect us. So, not fun lessons, but ones they will remember..as will the Queen who had the lovely task of disposing of the little chicky no one else was willing to touch...I did however refuse to dissect it. I'm thinking if they want to see whats inside it, they should do it themselves....eeeeewwwwww....

Tara, Dissection is an important learning tool, but I agree...it should never be done with specimens we know :o) Important thing to keep in mind (see post regarding "my kids never plotted to hurt their teacher!")
