Homeschool Highlights

Our school week in pictures...

Our week started off smoothly and we were able to get alot of school work done. However, by the end of the week we were visited by an unwanted guest...he is some sort of unnamed virus and I will be elated when he leaves our family alone. So we brought back the colloidal silver and elderberry syrup and hopefully he will run for dear life and leave us alone :)

We started off our week reading The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

After we read the book we painted snowmen with snow paint
This was super easy to make and lots of fun to work with.
Snow Paint Recipe

1 Cup of Salt
1 Cup of Flour
1Cup of Water
Put ingredients in a bowl, stir, and now you are 
ready to paint :)

Then we made snowflakes...

We had a great time !!

In History we learned about St. Francis of Assisi and in Bible we
learned about the fall of Jerusalem.

The girls and I are reading The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
and they are working on a lapbook. 

Jeremiah is reading Robin Hood by Roger Green.
He is really enjoying the book as well as the lapbook I got for free here.

We are learning to celebrate the small victories both in our homeschool days (that don't always go as planned)
and in our adoption. :)
