"Honor your father and your mother that you may live long in the land
the Lord your God has given you."
In my life this week…
I'm sorry y'all - but somebody's gotta do it - When the going gets tough, we go outside. I'd like to tell you that it's all for the kids . . . but that would be a flat out lie! Mama loves her time outdoors.
They don't hate it either - Hh is for Harmonious and Heartsome -time with family in the great outdoors!

In our homeschool this week…
(Well, the study of the results of the hexaemeron - anyways )
The Coral bean plant and the blue-crab were fun to learn about as we explored God's Creation
Read explore learn: Hh is for . . . Harry Horseshoe Crab
We further explored horseshoe crabs with our Apologia - Swimming Creatures science book
Hh is for . . . Herps (as in Herpetology)
Our Swimming Creatures book is focused on sea creatures - We studied turtle shells (we happen to have a few, with scoots in tact, from our various outdoor explorations) The boys also followed the instructions in the book and used their elbows to pull themselves along like a sea turtle going to lay eggs on the beach.
Below left: the boys are (unfortunately) doing some herp study up close and personal . . . IN my house!
Hh is for . . . hummingbird - We used our GeoMatters Geography Through Art
That pretty much sums up our week! We enjoyed our time in the great outdoors, exploring and learning about God's creation
