Peek At Our week 25

     I love seeing my kids sitting around the table working quietly! It is a rare occurrence after all. This week has been full of projects, new journals, of course and some library volunteer excitement! 

  Since Fox has been reading the space theme Horrible Science book he is also enjoying the science kit along side of it. This week he made an asteroid and we learned how craters are formed on the moon. 

     I think it came out pretty neat with the way the colors all stayed and didn't mix. 

     We dropped it in a box of flour and yes it was messy! But the dips in the flour that it left behind were pretty cool to see.

Our Review Of Bessie's Pillow


     My daughter has been amazed by the book Bessie's Pillow for the past few weeks. We were offered this book by Strong Learning, Inc. this month as a review item and it has been wonderful! She has really enjoyed reading this book. 

Bessie's Pillow

     Skyler truly enjoys pictures with her favorite books and this has become a true favorite for her!

Field Trip!!!!!

     We had an amazing day at the museum for all things geology! There were many games to play and I was pretty pleased she was answering so many of these things correctly! The museum does this every year and every year it is pretty fun! They also added a few new things this year so that was even better.

Peek At Our Week 24

     This was a fairly laid back fun week! The kiddos worked in their journals and did science projects. 

     In science Fox has been reading about stars and constellations so he chose to make this project.

Peek At Our Week 23

     NEW JOURNALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Skyler is using the All About Animals Journal and Fox is using the Just For Teen Guys Journal! I love starting new journals and picking new books! I think they love it too they just don't wanna say so! Of course these books are by The Thinking Tree. Our school days are becoming more and more along the lines of fun-schooling lately. The kids are doing better with it, they are actually remembering what they have learned. Fox is reading more and more books which is just a miracle in itself! Skyler as always has picked things that deal with animals. 

      Fox as usually is very history heavy!

Peek At Our Week 22

     I guess Fox was not in the mood for pictures this week. I managed to catch that rare occurrence he was actually doing the coloring pages from his journal. These are not his favorite pages, he is just not the coloring kind of kid. He loves his journals though and wouldn't enjoy school any other way.
