She now has nature journals to go with each Zoology book... and we are very excited.
We read a lot, read aloud and do unit studies from time to time.
Several things we do every year is our devotion time. When the boys were toddlers we called it our circle time. This is the time we read aloud, pray, sing.... and practice our LONG passage memorization. We are reading several books. The list is on the side bar on the right.
We do try to have a picnic in the woods a couple times a year, we do school outside some.... we take nature walks.
Some years have been harder than others.... but all and all... it works for us. It is just a way of life. I am thankful God allows me to stay at home and teach my children. It is truly a gift from Him.
At church last night the boys were asked by a couple of the children....
"why do you like to be home schooled?"
Wyatt's reply "Cause I get to spend more time with my mom."
Wesley's reply "Cause some days we do not have to do school!"
Guess that sums it up..... not really but for today it is.
