We are fighting some kind of Spring cold/flu in our home this week - so we've taken it slowly
We have continued our study from the Apologia Swimming Creatures book - we added a study of
Sea Stars by doing a lapbook :

We are also using our new Notebooking pages from the Notebooking Fairy as we study Dolphins

I've printed out our notebooking and lapbooking pages for our bird study as well - we took this picture of a Florida Scrub-jay at a near by park. Scrub jays are highly intelligent birds who are easily tamed. I've had them sit on my finger on numerous occasions. (A-ma-Zing)

While we were in the house working on our notebook pages and other school stuff - my 7 yr old spotted a Red Headed Woodpecker (and recognized it right away) - I looked up and saw this through the screen:
Can you find the Woodpecker in this picture?
I know. Right? So, Where's the bird? It's like - where's Waldo? I was shooting blind - when I cropped the picture though and lightened it up a bit - I found this:
Oh! To have his eyes! His father also possesses this strange gift - He'll see a "dot" in the sky - name it - and start talking about it's eating and mating habits. For real. Handy for homeschool though for sure!
I am so thankful for the family time we got to spend this Easter weekend.
We had a relaxing peaceful Easter - we enjoyed a beautiful service at church - came home to eat a delicious meal and have some quiet family time - we did a little egg hunt in the yard and talked about the real reason for our celebration - the risen Savior. It was a beautiful time.
Let's hear it for the boys: I'm so proud when they work together as a team and show their sweet side!
H- is for Happy
H- is also for Hibiscus - Which also make me Happy
Wrap-up: We'll be finishing off our homeschool week with a History class tomorrow - the boys watched several historical films and science films this week as we convalesced (been wanting to use that word)
Hoping everyone is well enough to have a real school lesson - and finish our Noah's Ark project
(I'll take pictures)
3 in 30:
1. Spiritual- in the Word daily and Shepherding a Child's Heart online book club
2. Health- God is healing me NOW - doing my part drinking water - less sugar more protein
- using my essential oils - exercise 3 x per week
3. Schedule- homeschool and organizing (one room and one bedroom each week organized)
Spiritual- Ok, so I had my quiet time most days this week so far - still need improvement - still need to write post for the chapter 2-3 but the reading and study is done!
Health- Still feeling so much better than I was before - we are fighting sickness in the house this week so I don't feel well - but my healing from RA is now and my daily pain is well under control - almost gone! drinking my water - using my oils - didn't get much exercise because we are sick -yucky- *the oils are helping me fight that off and my husband too!
Schedule- did I mention we are fighting sickness? I've had a little boy in my bed and just not feeling well so the schedule I was so happy about hasn't really happened - I did get some paperwork into a binder and part of the bed room paperwork cleared & some cleaning in bedroom and main room (this is aside from normal kitchen, bathroom, and daily cleaning of course)
*I purchased my copy of Simple Blogging and have begun reading it - get your $8 copy here and join us
So, a little is good in a sick week - at least I've made a bit of headway!
