Here's last week's check in.
We are getting closer to being on track. I cannot believe this whole thing is supposed to be over in a few short days.
This week, we listened to the rest of Matthew, plus Mark, Luke, John, and the first 11 chapters of Acts. It was fascinating listening to the gospels back to back like that. It was a great week of listening.
My kids were having a lot of fun talking about some of the little changes in details between the gospel accounts, and Connor was really interested in who wrote each of the gospels and why... and how that impacted what they wrote. I'll confess -- that did slow us down a bit. I think his writing class had something to do with that -- they've been pushing that you can't understand a work if you don't understand where the author is coming from. That was something I was glad to see, so we did detour a little bit. ESV Study Bible on Logos to the rescue!
We've got almost exactly ten hours of listening to go. Over six days, I think that means about 1:40 per day. Though what is probably actually going to happen is that we'll listen to more like 2-3 hours tomorrow, as we are heading in to town for a homeschooling thing at the library, and then rather than come home to listen to pounding on the roof (I HOPE!), we'll hang out, go to Scouts, and head home.
