I have a couple of other challenges I've entered, but they will have to wait til after VBS. I'm very excited for our kids. The theme is the Armor of God. It's very easy to teach Bible verses when you have cool armor to reinforce the idea!
And next week is the beginning of Bead Soup Blog Party!!!! That was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again. If you've not heard of it, head on over to Lori Anderson's blog, Pretty Things. You still have time to get in on the fun.
I know some people are feeling sad, thinking summer is half over. It has really been a whirlwind for me, and fall promises to be the same. I have switched curriculum in a couple of different subjects, so I'm a bit nervous, but mostly excited to get started. We will be studying US History this year, so I'm going to work on some unit studies as well. I know a lot of you live near historic sites, so please feel free to send me any links or info on interesting places or things.
Ok, gotta get back to cutting and pasting. Have an awesome day!!!
Oops, couldn't let you leave without a few pics, right?
She got this spiral to stack 45 tiles high. These are called Kapla blocks, if you're not familiar with them. Much harder than Legos, cause there's nothing to attach to, just a 1 inch strip of wood to lay the next strip of wood on. This is great for development of engineering skills.
The cute dog posing in her new haircut...nekkid! (Translates to "naked and up to something") In her case, just being cute!
