Lunch At Five Guys

This guy and I enjoyed lunch out today and we had a nice conversation about school. When I asked him of the five subjects we do, which one is his favorite ~ he said Bible. My heart skipped a beat and in that very moment, I knew THIS is why we do what we do. He enjoys learning and it is fulfilling. Having the opportunity to learn with a faith-based education, Griffin is both intellectually challenged and he is growing in his walk with Jesus Christ. I am SO grateful!

Rocky Mountain National Forest Sunset

He is so good to me ~ my sweet husband knows how much I love sunsets. He shared one with me from 11,000 feet up in the Rocky Mountains National Forest.

Self Motivated & Art Class

This guy was pretty awesome today! While I was in Bible study, he completed more school work than I assigned. Then we headed to Richmond for his Art History class. He enjoyed today's lesson, the teacher began teaching shading composition. On another note ~ he started calling me Ma today. I'm not really sure how I feel about that.

Lifeless Leaf

I noticed this leaf when I was going in to church earlier. It's worn, torn, and lifeless ~ but, it's beauty shines through in the shape of a heart.

Science Experiment

Even the simplest experiment can be fascinating. Griffin did this one over and over. He was given a hypothesis that fire needs oxygen in order to burn. He had to determine the materials he would need for the experiment, figure out a basic plan and carry it out.

Steps he followed for this assignment: observation, list of questions, form hypothesis, conduct experiment, analyze data and draw a conclusion.

The Simple Life

The simple life ~ an afternoon at home getting chores done and buggy riding.

Art History Class

Griffin's Art History Class was a lesson in ancient writings on rocks. If you notice, his drawing of the phoenix is raised. He's really enjoying this class.
