    Creation Study ~Day 1 Light, Day & Night

    Wednesday, August 28th, 2013


    “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good;

    and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

    So the evening and the morning were the first day.”

    Genesis 1:3-5


    For our science for the next 6 weeks(maybe 7) we are studying Scientific Creationism and a science subject to go with each day of creation.

    Week 1 was the study of Day 1 so we studied light, Day and Night.

    We are reading the corresponding lesson from the “Answers for Kids curriculum” as well as “Case for a Creator for Kids“.

    This is our second time reading the Case for a Creator, my boys are getting so much out of it this time around!

    I let the boys play with playdough sometimes while I read.

    There is a nice Creation Study Unit on this site that I have been using as a reference also.

    The Max Axiom book “The illuminating world of Light” is a great way to introduce the subject.

    The Magic Schoolbus show has a great episode on light called “Makes a rainbow”.

    We got the “Bending Pencil” experiment from here.

    Sciencekids has a really good section on light with experiments also.

    We did there experiment on absorbing heat and the boys loved it!

    I just forgot to take any pictures…

    My oldest read Children’s biographies on Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein.

    I would like to say it was intentional on my part that these went along with our lesson but it was complete serendipity.

    I love when that happens.

    My son and I like the Graphic Novel Biographies best.

    They are colorful and look like comic books!

    We are covering one Day of creation for a week.

    Answersingenesis.org has a great kids section so be sure to check them out for more info on Creation!

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    I have been listening to Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum.


    Several times a day…

    It is an addiction and makes me want to take lots of pictures like this.

    It gets worse each time I listen to the song.

    I keep listening to it though.

    Some of my favorites from our recent vacation.

    Get ready for the infamous “vacation photos”.

    Everyone wants to look at my vacation pictures, right?


    Just pretend you do.

    Or I will bust out the scrapbooks.

    I actually made my now husband look at ALL of my scrapbooks on our first date.

    It is how I knew he was a keeper.

    He did not run away screaming.

    South Carolina

    There is a blog post about what we were doing in South Carolina on my other blog, here.



    If you look close you can see deer running across the field.

    I did not see them until I was editing.

    I need to start wearing my glasses…


    Why can’t I just vacation forever?

    Food and clothing is overrated.
