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.
