Exploration Day!



Today's school day involved doing some school work inside....then when that was finished...OUT we went! It's Exploration Day!!! We spent some time looking for ant hills (found tons of those)...and ants (didn't find as many of those...it was chilly out this morning). The kids had a lot of fun exploring! After that, while I journaled out back at our picnic table...Madelyn drew a picture of an ant and wrote a sentence about them! After that....the kids were off...playing and enjoying God's Creation!!! It was a super nice morning! The air is comfortable..the sky is blue and the sun is shining!!! Wonderful!!!!



I have a couple recipes that I posted earlier today...if you haven't yet...make sure you scroll down and check them out!!! Have a wonderful Monday! :)

  4. I have the casserole recipe, but I copied down the granola bar recipe. I will make them as soon as I go to Costco to get the big box of bisquick!! They look so yummy. Glad you're schooling is going so well. Julie

  15. How fun! Have you checked out Charlotte Mason's teaching philosophies? Your local library may have some of the books written by her or about her. Just love her style.
