Creation and Astronomy

We started our homeschool this year with the story of Creation.  We are spending an entire week on the days of creation and weaving Science into the Bible.  After all, Science is learning about God's creation!  We are beginning a long study on Astronomy - creation, planets, constellations, etc.

I have gathered so many resources and so excited about this because of my own personal love of space.  It started when I was in fifth grade when I went to Space camp in Huntsville, Alabama at the US Space & Rocket Center.  It was a memorable time for me.  It didn't end there, I went on to join the Air Force and the love for aeronautics was also shared by my husband, who at the time was an aircraft electrician.

Some have said, how can you spend a whole year on Astronomy?  Well, they just don't understand all that is involved in our great universe!  Teaching God's creation and the details of space, rockets, astronauts and history of the travels in space is quite intensive you will find.

I was researching some videos on youtube for creation/space/planets, etc and found the one below.  It is the historical account of Apollo 8's Christmas Eve address to the earth that resounds in praise of the mighty Creator!

I'm so glad it's started off well. Good days are God-given inspirations of encouragement. Keep up the good work!

Our 6yr. old is also using First Language Lessons. We do it 3 times a week. She has started memorizing the 2nd poem "Work" and loves to memorize poetry so far.

Linda..Katie really likes the FLL, she memorized "The Caterpillar" and I was really amazed she could do that the first week and I'm enjoying teaching!!!
