Our learning year is progressing nicely.
Earth science is proving to be a favorite for her.
Lots of experiments.
Lots of creating.
Papier mache Earth, Moon and Sun.
Our schedule allows for a lot of afternoon creativity.
Blocks, magnets, Lincoln logs and modelling clay.
She is always making or imagining something.
Her first bunting which she stamped with apples,
iron and sewed together herself.
Pride in her workmanship was oozing from
her very being.
And of course there is ample time for outdoor play.
In this picture she is trying to coast down the golf course
hills on her belly. Like a penguin of course.
It is her winter goal to be able to do this
without a sled.
And you know how people always take pictures
of their footprints in the white sand beaches?
Well this is more our style.
Mine and Athena's that is.
Paul would rather his toes in the sand.
And of course there is a lot of crafting going on.
Winter themed of course.
Lots of ideas on Pinterest.
Her modelling clay table sits in a corner of the dining room.
Hours upon hours are spent here.
This week her Young Naturalists group
made platform bird feeders and learned
about feeding birds in winter.
The days are predictable and pleasant.
Things are running smoothly.
This home schooling gig is the way to go I tell you.
