The older children (15, 14, & 13) will using Foundations In Romans, an inductive Bible study that I purchased from Simply Charlotte Mason. They will also be beginning to hand scribe their own copy of the Bible. This idea comes from Deuteronomy 17:18 where the king was commanded to make his own copy of the law. When I was in highschool, one of my homeschool friends was working on this project. I had forgotten about it, until I saw a product called Journibles in one of my catalogs. After careful consideration ($$$), I decided to go ahead and let the children created their own altered notebooks for this project instead of purchasing the journals.

The Bible notebooks for the middle (11, 10) and younger children (almost 8, 6) are economy 3-ring binders with a decorated cover page taped on the front. The three oldest will be filling out Bible character biography sheets that I copies from A Garden Patch of Reproducible Homeschooling Forms as they read through the Old Testament. I printed some fancy borders on the backs of these pages so they could draw a picture from the life of each Bible character. The 6 year old will be using the Old Testament and New Testament Bible Scribe pages from Westvon Publishing. These have a verse at the top of the page, a place just below that to illustrate the verse, lines at the bottom to narrate the meaning of the verse, and a banner running through the middle of the page to copy the verse onto.
