Saturday Homeschooling Update: Doctrines and Church Fathers – Free Worksheets

Hello all, I hope this post finds you doing well! Below I’ve attached some lessons on the virgin birth, as apart of the essential doctrines series, and worksheets on Ignatius of Antioch. I’ve also linked to the extant letters from Ignatius in case anyone wants to add the reading to their lessons. I recommend Songs with Saplings to go alongside this lesson as the doctrinal worksheets include catechism questions, and SwS has adorable and instructive music to go with those questions. I hope these lessons will be a blessing, for homeschooling or Sunday school.

The garden has produced some more strawberries, and jalapeños, but the tomatoes are still pretty green. We added mini pumpkins, and they’ve already begun to flower! They’re really beautiful flowers, but they don’t last long before they turn into tiny green pumpkins. At this point, pulling weeds and watering them is the most exciting them that happens. Hopefully this stage of gardening will teach Kayleigh patience. It’s certainly teaching me!

Other than that, I don’t have much else to report. There’s only three games left of softball, but we found a baseball league for her age to play in the fall. This will be the first year she’s done that, and I’m excited to see what it will be like! The team of players she began with this summer had mostly never played, and it’s been amazing to watch them grow as a team together learning how to catch, throw, hit, and communicate. I’m very thankful that she’s been able to play and learn through this sport.

As she nears the end of the Little House on the Prairie books, we’re looking for something to replace it. Any and all recommendations are so very helpful! There hasn’t been much change, although Lord willing next week I’ll have a science related update. I hope you have all had a fruitful week. As always, beloved brethren, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved!
