Every school morning we start out our day with prayer, Bible reading, Memorization, reading of a fun educational book (currently a neat one of the history of medicine), singing and stretching. While the kids listen to me read and while we quote our Bible chapters together we work with our hands. (I don't do it while I read, I just do it during the quoting.)
Mara generally does a lot of cross stitching while the rest of us have been busy working on rag rugs lately (though Megan will sometimes draw or do other things as well). Jonathan loves to cut strips and is good at it. The others are still learning but they do pretty good. They are good at connecting the strips together. Today I got Aaron started at weaving a hula hoop rug so he worked on that. Jonathan will also sometimes help me crochet the rugs.
How do you find time to work on projects?
