Looking at this week....

I have to tell you all how much I enjoy homeschooling my youngest daughter. This week we are going to start working on our Christmas lapbook and we have a field trip on Tuesday that we are so excited about. Of course as the week progresses pictures will follow. Right now it is snowing out so our plans for tomorrow could change... to lots of outdoor play depending how much snow we get.

Sorry about little updates

Nature Walk and lessons for today...

Today we went for a nature walk... the temperatures were beautiful outside so we thought we would take full advantage of the weather. We did our lessons first thing this morning... it worked out well for us... and then in the afternoon we did some crafts.

Today's lesson on the table waiting to be taught.

Off on the nature hike we go:

Getting the crayons ready to make the rubbings. It took longer to peel back
the paper on the crayons then it did to do anything else.

It is magic... a leaf appears!!!!!
