Tech Tuesday

Welcome back to Tech Tuesday. Today I wanted to share about one of the ways we use our iPad. Jonah has been making these wonderful Lighthouse Memory Club animations for the kids and we have all been learning our memory verses. You will be hearing more about the Lighthouse Memory Club as time goes on, but today I just want to show you this PDF that we use. We wanted a quick and easy way to review our memory verses every morning, so Jonah set to work and came up with a nice little PDF that we can use on …

I apologize for not getting a post up for Tech Tuesday yesterday, but life has been a wee bit crazy around here since my son’s trip to the ER on Sunday (post about that coming soon).

Space Launch

He tried fervently one day to tell us of his latest concept for an animation. You can see his head swarming as it is misfiring. Frustrated with not being able to get his words out we were able to calm him down. It was a simple idea. “I want a rocket to launch into space and *swoosh* come back down.” I (Jonah) figured that wasn’t to hard to animate. I commissioned him to create the drawings to be used. Okay, that was setting myself up for a disaster. He went to our little computer lab in the basement to get …

My mama has been asking questions about our iPad since we bought it. The kids have showed her how to use it and she has been quite intrigued by it. For her, it is the perfect size and fairly easy to use. Buying the iPad I was so shocked when we I was chatting with my mama on the phone recently and she told me that she had purchased an iPad. I felt all giddy inside. She went out and bought one all on her own. She was so excited to show it to us. She could hardly wait to …
