FLU! yup - yucky, icky, gross 'ole FLU. We are slowly but surely on the mend.
We didn't do much at all for Memorial Day because of this illness of ours, but we did manage fried chicken and apple pie with ice cream!
My husband is working his busy season right now - so he is gone a LOT & I am on my own with the boys. For those who don't know - he is a Pro Fishing Guide & it's Tarpon season in Southwest Florida! Captain Daddy is a busy buy.
Find him here if you are looking for a BIG father's day surprise for your guy. Let me know and I will arrange a homeschool family discount for you and a gift certificate for a fishing charter.
In our homeschool this week . . .
We are mostly resting and recovering. We had such a big time at Teach Them Diligently, Nashville (we'll be headed to Fort Myers mid-June for TTD The Marketplace) If you are in the area - this is the place to go for homeschoool encouragement & huge curriculum discounts! There are Marketplace locations set up all around the country with only $15 Family registration.
Read, learn, explore . . .
We purchased some of Tim Ostermeyer's incredible books at TTD and are really enjoying them. The pictures are breathtaking, he took them all himself. They teach about creation from all around the world. As much as we enjoy studying animals - these books are great to read and explore.
I'll be making up some unit studies to go with them soon for further exploration of the books. We will also do some nature sketches of the animals in our nature journals.
Our letter of the week . . . K is for Keeping their hearts trained on Jesus
