If they Would Only Follow Directions....

This week has been one of frustration
and fun all at the same time.

We are working on a math concept that
should not be that difficult. In fact,
it would not be if the kids would only
bend their pride and follow my directions.

They are intent on doing the processes
we are working on in their heads. Not
only does this take the fun out of it but
it leads to frequently wrong answers.

Oh, my how often do we do this in our
daily lives. Attempt to shortcut and
"know better"?

God has given us all of the instruction that
we need. It is all in a very handy and
easy to follow instruction manual...it is
called The Bible. But how often do we turn
to the instructions as a last resort...

Sad. But true.

I am working on learning from the object
lesson provided from our homeschool week.

Turning to the manual...

Learning from the Master Instructor!

I totally understand this kind of stubborness! We are doing Konos now and I skipped the first chapter and went right to Obedience! It actually is working out nicely, but there are those day :) I am praying for you!
