We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

In our household we have just celebrated Shavuot. The feast of weeks. Firstfruits. Pentecost.
In the past it has been a meal that has come and gone but as we seek to disciple our children by obedience to the feasts of the Lord as they appear in the Old Testament, we think a little more about what these feasts really mean.
Shavuot is the commemoration of the ingathering of the harvest. Being as we live in the Southern Hemisphere and it is really not harvest time here we made a meal with seasonal vegetables, creating our own harvest to thank the Lord for.
This resulted in a conversation about northern and southern hemispheres, what 'seasonal' vegetables were and so forth but it also helped Lamb to understand that all good things come from the Lord (James 1:17).
