Apologia notebooking contest

Apologia is now producing notebooking journals that accompany each of the elementary science books. Both Botany and Astronomy are now available. You can see samples on the Apologia website.

These journals are beautiful spiral bound notebooks that will save you time and money. You won't have to print and keep up with your child's notebook pages, buy and maintain page protectors, or purchase and compile binders...everything that makes notebooking time-consuming and labor intensive for mom. Also, your child will adore having their own notebooking journal.

Each of the notebooking journals include:

-A daily schedule for those who like to have a plan or would like their children to complete the book on their own.
-Templates for written narrations, the notebooking activities and experiments
-Review Questions
-Scripture Copywork, with both print and cursive practice
-Reading lists and additional activities, projects, experiments for each lesson
-An appendix with beautiful, full-color, lapbook-style Miniature Books
-Field Trip Sheets to keep a record field trips
-A Final Review with fifty questions the students can answer either orally or in writing to show off all they remember and know at the end of the course.

See the sample pages here:

Jeannie is giving away four Astronomy Notebooking Journals and four Botany Notebooking Journals to bloggers who post about this on her site. Visit her blog to learn more about this contest:

Amazing Grace

"Amazing Grace"
by Englishman John Newton

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

His grace alone

Often the sins of others seem worst than our own... but it is sometimes necessary to see them and by the grace of God we can see our own and realize that we are not better, that our sins are not less harmful to our Holy and precious God, but just as bad and terrible in His eyes, and is not until we realize that and pray, that by His mercy and grace He will not let ME forget the mercies that He had toward me.. that He forgave me of much and that is probably why I love Him SO much. That He will protect me from pride of thinking to high of my self as in thinking that my sins as not as bad as other people, or to low of my self by thinking that my sins or actions do not affect too much my character.... but that everything I do, think and say, will be work done for eternity, that everything I do will leave a mark in my character for good or for bad... That He will remind me using whatever He pleases, that I depend on Him every day and that my day will not go well apart from Him.

I want to learn and be reminded every day by my Savior, that He is transforming me, not in my time and as fast as I would have wanted, but in His time and in His perfect and most wise way. He has allowed thing in my life that without them I would have not learned to love Him even more. I know what forgiveness is, I also know that is not by feelings that I love Him, or by emotions, or by convenience, but by grace and grace alone that He causes me to love Him with all my heart and gives me the desire to walk in Him all the days of my life. He draws me to Him, cares for me, He disciplines me with so much tenderness and when I do not understand His will, He just works it out in my heart to love Him even more and gives me the peace that all is well because He is my God and I am His!

I have learn, to never do any thing or say any thing on which I would unwilling to ask His blessing. If I do that, I can really focus on living here on earth for eternity, honoring my husband, loving and teaching my children and forgiving before any harsh or ungodly thoughts or words comes out of my mouth. To seek the Giver and not the gift, to humble my self before Him, and offer my life as a sacrifice to Him just to bring Him pleasure.

I dream of the day, when I hear the words of my Lord saying "my good and faithful servant" (if it pleases Him), they will be the sweetest words I will ever hear, been in His presence, kiss His hands and feet and thanking Him for eternity for saving me... looking at His eyes and never letting go!.

"Boys and Girls Playing" by J. C Ryle, sermons for kids very convicting for them and me!. We love this one.

"Thoughts for Young Men" Can you go wrong with J. C. Ryle?... I don't think so..

"How to Be a Man" This is a wonderful book on character training!. Easy to read and full of wisdom.

"Created for Work" This is a good book. It is good to read together an comment on it.

This was their Science Expo. they worked really hard with his friends studying "Exploring Creation with Astronomy", it was an amazing book, with super fun projects and kept them interested every chapter. It was a nice reward to finish it with an expo and a chance to explain to others all that they learned. They were very proud!

Part of the fun at the expo, was that the four of them dressed as astronauts with a Canadian flag on the side of their suit.. (proud to be Canadian!!)

This was a field trip to the Cosmo dome (space museum). Where M. tried this robot car where he had to balance and go upside down trying to connect cables, pull out the solar panels in a space station, and head back to his place... it was GREAT!!!

This was their project trying to make the ISS. It was a lot of work.... but THEY DID IT!!
