Michael W. Smith's release of Sky Spills Over ~ SOVEREIGN CD #SkySpillsOver #FlyBy


Michael W. Smith
“SOVEREIGN”  Single ~ "Sky Spills Over" 

"I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER.  It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.  My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project.  But what made this project even more special was that 3 of my own grandkids were in the video.  This video was a lot of fun to make.  I hope people enjoy it!"

Want a healthier breakfast?

Healthy Breakfast

Oatmeal is a great morning pick up! 

Healthier Oatmeal
I use quick oatmeal for my breakfast. Often, I will vary what fruits are included in this recipe. I add bananas, strawberries
 and blueberries when available too.


Fruits & Nuts Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • Oatmeal (1 serving or 1/2 c.)
  • Ripe spottied yellow Banana (1/2 sliced)
  • Cranberries(1tbsp.)
  • Raisins (1 tbsp.)
  • Apple (1/2 diced)
  • Almond slices (1-2 tbsp.)
  • Brown sugar (1-2 tbsp.)
  • Butter (1 tbsp.)
  • Water 1 c.
  • Cinnamon (1 tsp.)
  • Opt. Flaxseed (2tbsp.)
Begin by adding water, almonds, cinnamon and fruits to a small pot and allow a full boil. Add the Oatmeal and cook on low until done.  This takes a little longer than a minute when adding fruits. I like my oatmeal fruits to be soft textured. Once the oatmeal is cooked serve it with brown sugar and butter. Add your favorite beverages and/or toast. Its so delicious! 

You can omit the brown sugar if you want to cut calories because the ripe banana will add sweetness to this recipe. 

I have not configured the calories. Its an easy and filling breakfast that gets me through the morning without feeling hungry.  Enjoy!

Homeschool Curriculum 2015 - Grade 5

Homeschool Curriculum 2015

Fifth Grader Homeschooling 2015 

If you noticed in the About Me section of Loving Heart Designs- I mentioned that I have been homeschooling since 1989 with all five of our children. I normally pass down curriculum from year to year but unfortunately shortly after a divorce in 2011 books went missing and I have had to rebuild our curriculum for my youngest child. Curriculum can be expensive but it helps if you can purchase used or from discount sales. I choose to continue using Easy Grammar that is published by Wanda Phillips. As for math, we are using something completely new and exciting called Singapore Mathematics by Marshall Cavendish Education. I found a bulk set of all five books on eBay brand new and very affordable. The Easy Grammar System was purchased from my favorite online store called Christianbook.com. You  can find other homeschool curriculum like Easy Grammar and  Singapore Mathematics at Christianbook.com. I have shopped with Christianbook.com for decades and have purchased used from eBay with successful results.

By Isha Enterprises, Inc.

Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all elementary aged children.
Workbook pages with answers overlaid face reproducible workbook pages for students to complete. "To the teacher" notes address areas of importance and teaching tips. A writing section is also included. Workbook to teacher's textcorrelations are noted in the back. Tests included. 700 pages, indexed, softcover. Pages are reproducible. Grade 5.
