Today we were finally able to dig back into our Human Body Unit Study. One of the great things about homeschooling, is that when life gets crazy (as it inevitably does), you can postpone school until a better time. We started today by watching a School House Rock video about the skeleton. What I loved […]

Today was our last day of studying the Skeletal System. We started by naming the different bones we’ve learned on “Joe” (our skeleton model, from “Ein-O’s Human Biology: Skeleton Box Kit”). I was surprised at how many bones the kids remembered. (And surprised at how many I had forgotten. Shh. Don’t tell them.) We then […]

Today, we learned even more about the skeletal system. We started with just a fun book called “Skeleton Hiccups”, by Margery Cuyler. It’s really just a silly story about a skeleton that can’t get rid of the hiccups, but it was a nice way to ease back into our discussion of the human body. The […]

The kiddos (ages 9, 7, and 5) decided that over our summer “break”, they’d like to do some more science along with the light history and math we’ll be doing to keep our minds fresh.  Somehow we landed on the idea of doing a unit study on the human body.  So, I got busy googling, […]

I just recently came across this quote about art and thought it fit with the Charlotte Mason view of art quite nicely. So I decided to share it with you all here. Enjoy! Art begs you to notice it. Why? Because art is God’s way of saying hello. So pay attention to poetry. Pay attention […]

“In the light of the moon, a little egg lay on a leaf…“ For Mother’s Day we have a tradition of planting in our garden in the back yard. The kids help pick out what we want to plant while we’re at the nursery, then enjoy digging holes in the garden to plant their favorites. […]

Kate and I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving by thinking of things we are grateful for all month long. And to write these things down, we’re posting them on our “Thanksgiving Tree” on our pantry door.

I ran across an article about making a collage of your child’s artwork on a canvas and hanging it in their room. And while the task of putting things on a canvas seemed a little daunting to me, I liked the general idea of being able to put MANY pieces of artwork together into one larger piece of art.
