Just a quick update: we've moved to a new apartment and we're busy getting settled. It's been 1.5 years since we started to read the Bible from the beginning and we've finally reach Malachi last night. I was thinking of reading to the end in one year but we did get a bit bogged down (we've moved twice over the past 1.5 years: once from Austin to San Bernardino County and last week to Orange County). We've had few days where we were too tired to read (up late for one reason or another) or my sons were away on a trip or two. We've also slowed down in order to take time to read certain parts. And we've skipped few boring parts (like temple description or family name/property details). In the process, we've discovered/discussed things like sex ed, father-son issues, politics, Middle East issues, etc.
Also, we've started to memorize (long) verses. Unlike AWANA's, we're memorizing a whole long sections, beyond Psalm 23 or Exodus 20:1-17, like James 1:13-27 or 1 Timothy 5:1-16 or Romans 8:28-38 or Ephesians 4:20-32.
