Harvesting zucchini 8/15/11
Trouble holding onto harvested zucchini 8/15/11
Drying our onion harvest in mid August.
Homeschool began on 8/22.
This week we are studying the Pilgrims. We even did an activity which demonstrated what the Pilgrims did in place of glass for their windows. Each one oiled his own sheet of printer paper with veggie oil, then compared it to a regular clean sheet of paper. We held them both up to the light and saw how much more light could get through the oiled paper. Then we placed both sheets on top of newsprint and they could see the newspaper through the oiled paper. We then made it 'rain' on both sheets of paper and saw how much more durable the oiled paper was!
On a side note for any of you homeschoolers out there, I'd like to recommend checking out the curriculum offered by "My Father's World." It makes it possible to teach one curriculum at each child's level, freeing you from having to teach multiple and widely varied curricula. I'm difficult to please, and this one has got me leaping for joy! It's Biblical while implementing the best of classical education, unit lessons, and Charlot Mason approaches. It's great. I am even free to start teaching the children beginning Latin for their foreign language. For that, I'm using Memoria Press' "Latina Christiana."
I'll sign off now, but not without sending out a great big, THANK YOU to Candy at the Lazy J Bar C. Even though it appeared I was MIA in blogger world, she up and bestows me with the Liebster Award. Then as if that wasn't a miracle unto itself, two hearty sweat souls join me in my followers list! Thank you MamaTea and Dr Momi for your faith in me! So happy and humbled that you would come join me! Thank you!
In your honor, I will pass on the love and the award in my next post!
