Well, we finished memorizing The Living Christ.  We actually finished about two weeks ago, but we have been working on perfecting it a little better.  There were a few spots that were giving the kids problems.  But, we are finished and it was a good experience for them.  They’ve learned not only that they are capable of memorizing a long piece, but they also understand more about their Savior and what his life meant to them individually.  My daughter loves that if someone has a question about the Savior she has lots of information about him “stuck in her head” :)

After we finished, they asked what we were going to memorize next!  I was a little surprised to hear that from them.  Well, I’m still working on that, but I’m leaning towards 1 Corinthians 13.  I’ve always loved that chapter about charity and my older kids memorized this many years ago.  I guess I need to start a list of the all the things I’d like them to memorize.  I’ll add that at a later time though :)

So I guess memorization has become a part of our homeschool again.  I’m glad because my older kids did a lot of memorizing, but at some point I dropped the ball on that and my kids really seem to enjoy it.
