One of the things I picked up from all my homeschooling philosophy books was the idea of memorization. After thinking about it for a while I decided that the first set of passages I should have CJ master are the Articles of Faith. We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Articles of Faith are 13 passages that outline our beliefs. Today CJ passed off his first memorization: "We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." I was impressed that EMan (just days from being 3 years old) has also memorized it right along with his brother.
