Tuesday 8/20 - 2nd day of school

We went for our walk this morning and went on a number hunt! We searched (and found!) the numbers 1, and 2. (Shrieks of excitement could be heard a half-mile away, I'm sure.)
When we got back home, we counted to 21 on the calendar, discussed yesterday, today, and tomorrow, recited our bible verse (Ps 24:1) and sang the "days of the week" song.
We then did our bible study, and learned that on the 2nd day, God made the sky, and divided the water above from the water below. Rowen and Charlotte got to color the #2 and cut it out (or cut it up, depending on the child. See photos on instagram #happelhomeschool) and then they colored the sea, and the clouds on another sheet of paper for their creation books.
We sang our song (several times) "This is my Father's World" and then looked it up on Youtube, which the kids *really* enjoyed. Their favorite is Alli Roger's version:

and we watched it repeatedly while they crafted! (and I got a headstart on dinner! woot!)
