April 13 - What we did today

Today we did some work on the Mother's day unit study done by Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett.. We did a copywork sheet on Genesis 3:20. We had the fun of discovering the Go Fish Guys.

We did days one and two. If you want to know more Click here to view more details.

We learned the history of Mom's day, the lad drew some pictures, did some copywork, saw what the flower of mother's day was (the carnation), and took in some geography as well. He had a great deal of fun making me a mom's day card. :) The lad's response to day one and two of this study "I liked drawing the card for you mommy but I didn't like the rest of it."

Then we had lunch and headed off to the library.

We got out a whole bunch of new books and had fun playing trains. We added a twist to the train play today...we took pieces of the toddler puzzles (animal shapes) and had them in the train area. The pigs had a zoo and the angry birds broke down the walls and well...the animals all got out. The pigs rebuilt the zoo and to compensate themselves for having to rebuild started over-charging the animals for their food so the animals all went out and got jobs. It was a fun story that taught concepts as well. :)

Out to the park for a walk afterwards. We had a good time walking around the pond. We saw a goose on eggs and two muskrats eating grass and watched them dive into the pond through a hole in the ground. Then we saw a white thing in the water. It made us VERY curious so we tried to get it onto the shore... as we moved it we saw that it was an egg! We tried hard to bring it in but the soil at the side of the pond has a edge to it so we lost it under that edge. :( Made us both disappointed. The lad said "NEXT TIME MOMMY. Let me do it!" So we spent some more time trying to locate more eggs...goose, duck, bird ...anything eggs, but no such luck, but a good time had tramping around the pond looking hard for them and scaring up ducks and geese as we went.

Then home to make supper and to relax. A good day overall. :)
