I am delighted to report that our learning today was tops!
How often can you fit every subject in without opening a single book?!
(Perhaps a slight exaggeration)
We read chapter 19 of Genesis. The Little Bugs really dig this book of the Bible, and if anyone has some great ideas on how to act out the Bible as we read it, I could use practical ideas - I'm not strong in the drama suite (that's Molly's department). ;-P
Zachary counted by two's as I measured wheat berries into zip lock bags;
We read about Cinco de Mayo (Did you know it is NOT Mexico's Independence day? It's hardly even recognized in Mexico! Go figure. I'm from California, and it's a pretty big deal THERE, especially if you are in the goat business!)
We learned how to season cast iron, and the boys seasoned my new Dutch Oven for me!
We also got online and learned how to sprout wheat. Following that we had to try it for ourselves. (did you know just how healthful sprouted nuts, seeds and legumes are?) (A later post).
Last but not least, we culminated our day with a project that has been anticipated for a while: Painting the wooden "Treasury chests!" (as Clay calls them). So her are some pictures of that fun adventure!
As you can see, they really got into it, and Little Sister was so good to sit and watch (The apple wedge wasn't a bribe, but it was effective!).
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
