Apologia, "Who is my Neighbor?"

Hi Neighbors!

Have any of you ever tried any of the Apologia curriculum before?  We received the Who is my Neighbors set, and instead of using it for school curriculum we used it for devotions a few times a week.  In our Who is my Neighbor set we received the hardback book, "Who is my Neighbor?" ($39.00), along with the Notebooking Journal ($24.00) and the Coloring Book ($8.00).  This was our first experience with Apologia.  I have heard quite a few people recommend it, so I was excited to get a chance to try Apologia with our family.

To be honest we personally had to skip a few areas since as a family we do not use television, movies, and a few of the books they used, especially when discussing Bible.  Also I prefer to just read the Biblical accounts and discuss them, rather than adding to Scripture to retell the account.  We were able to skip over those portions and still use the curriculum.  The actual subject covered in this series is much needed today though, servanthood.  We need to realize and to train our children so that they will realize they are here to help others and encourage others.

My husband led off with the reading portions of "Who is my Neighbor?", and occasionally we all took turns reading.  In the reading portions they use different types of example and stories to help teach the lesson.  Some of them are true accounts, others were based on books and other media. We then discussed the questions together as a family.  You can also fill out the Notebooking Journal together as a family, with each member adding their own thoughts.The Journal also has extra activities to help reinforce the lessons being taught, like; Word Searches, verses to memorize, thoughtful questions for you to answer, praise reports, and prayer.  We personally did not use the coloring book, but for younger children this would be helpful and fun.

This is actually the third part in a series done by Apologia.  I have never seen any of the others before, but you might wish to start with the first one in the series and work your way through, although this is not necessary because each book can stand alone. Who is my Neighbor is recommended for ages 6- 14.

We have enjoyed using this series for devotions.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
