Consecration of the Mass
" A thousand years of enjoying human glory is not worth even an hour spent sweetly communing with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."
~ Padre Pio
This is an important lesson to learn. Thankfully the kids see this weekly at Mass. We reread the Baltimore Catechism.
We read a wonderful lesson over at the Catholic Toolbox all about the Consecration of the Mass.
We worked on a few worksheets from That Resource Site.

The Civil War
Learning about the civil war has been a wonderful journey. We have learned so much about the struggle our country went through. To help us with this journey, we used Homeschool in the Woods History Through the Ages: Time Travelers History Study The Civil War.
We enjoyed using this program. It contained a wonderful timeline, great hands-on projects to do, and yummy (and not so yummy) recipes to try.
You can see more about this fun unit study here.(Link coming soon)
We watched a wonderful documentary about The Civil War by Ken Burns.
The Gettysburg Address
We read the Gettysburg Address together. I then have Michael and Therese both try to recite it. I love to see how far they will get. Eventually they will have it all memorized. They do read it every night at bed time. I also encourage them to write it down to help with memorization.
Till next time,
