It is a 3-D book on the planets - so he of course had to put the space shuttle 3-D glasses on too!
Sarah and Rachel were working on doodles while I was reading history. I find it helps them to keep their brains engaged to be busy with their hands. Sometimes they knit.
This is one of Sarah's pages...
This was Rachel's...
We are using Jeannie Fulbright's "Exploring Creation with Astronomy" book. You can find this great science book at Apologia or through Christian Book Distributors.
For history we are using Genevieve Foster's book "The World of Captain John Smith."
We are learning so much about Queen Elizabeth the first, King Phillip II of Spain, Sir Walter Raleigh, Sir Frances Drake, Mary, Queen of Scots, the three Henry's, the wars due to religion, El Greco, and of course, Captain John Smith.
I am a huge history buff. I believe that you learn so much about God and His working in the world as you study history. You see the interweaving of lives, art, politics, culture. It's a wonderful thing.
We also are memorizing Psalm 1. We almost have it down. I will try to get Kyle on video. Very earnest. Love that boy....
Right now it is time for riding lessons, Lindsay has two young sisters as students on Wednesday afternoon, and the kids are off playing with the siblings. She already had an earlier lesson, as well. Then my Dad will be over to ride with Lindsay this afternoon. She is teaching him to ride. I believe they are going on a trail ride today.
I think I am going to play with Pinterest some more...very interesting and fun!
