Today I managed to catch ALL of the kids after lunch and had a mini history/religion lesson with them. I spoke about Susanna Wesley homeschooling her children and a little of how her home might have looked and felt. We practiced. :) I instructed the children all to find a place to sit, and to be quiet. Then I left the room. When I returned, they all stood quietly and waited for me to speak. It was lovely! (But I won't expect it on a regular basis...hehe). Next I sat in the corner and put my apron (I had to improvise using my lovely apron received from Donita K. Paul...not quite like Susanna's may have been) over my head. They were all sitting quietly until I took the apron off. Ahhhhh....Oh, and I had Micah take a picture:
It was a fun lesson. I was so glad to have their attention. What a brief but happy moment!
