We started with Rome to Reformation this past week. It is our third year of using My Father’s World curriculum and again, I am really enjoying it.
L. showing some work he has done
H. smiling for the picture
T. hard at work on handwriting
We try to in the afternoons after our bookwork is done get fresh air while it is nice out and get together with friends when we can. I was babysitting my nephews this day and we met some friends at the park.
Working hard to climb the ladder!
How fast can we go?
We have also been doing lots of nature hikes and walks to get our exercise, but also see what things we can learn from nature.
Everyone is good about exploring new trails, but we stay close together in case we see more wildlife than we would like!
A bee nest
The freshly killed neck bones of a deer….it was lunch for a hungry mountain lion in the past few days…but was science and anatomy lesson for us.
One of the moms was a chiropractor before and gave a detailed lesson on how the ligaments, veins and all were connected to this piece of bone.
We marked the spot so we can watch as it finishes decomposing the rest of the flesh and ligaments that were on it.
An odd root clump or nest of some sort…
There was a chipmunk…somewhere up there!
Our mixed group of children…
A few more…
I am looking forward to many more good weeks of school this year!
