On our fourth day of counting gifts, the theme is gifts reaped. Since I’m not a gardener or farmer, I’m going with three gifts we reaped in our homeschool today.
1. a flexible schedule that permits a tired child to sleep in when the crazy, noisy wind has kept her up at night
2. her freedom and creativity to invent her own crossword puzzles for 4th grade spelling words using Bananagrams and graph paper
3. enough downtime together to enjoy sipping steaming cups of hot tea during the lunch hour
The theme for the three gifts posted each day comes from the Joy Dare calendar at A Holy Experience). Head on over to read Ann Voskamp’s post “How to Make Joy in the Hard Places.”
