Wednesday's Ways...

While I was in the kitchen this morning,
cooking up some zucchini and squash,
the children were birdwatching
from our dining room window
(which we love to do all day long).
We saw a nuthatch in our tree
and Beth was excited!
She was excited because just a while before
they had been looking at birds
from our Bird card game
and she recognized the lil' bird in the tree.
She was thrilled to show Mommy
that she knew which bird it was...

Mommy was so proud of her
being able to recognize the bird so well. ;o)
We love watching this lil' bird walk up and down the tree!

Here was the evidence of Beth searching
for just the right bird card...

Then she and Carolynne
enjoyed looking through them a little more,
picking out the ones we have in our backyard...

Have I mentioned lately that I just LOVE

homeschooling and natural learning? ;o)

After eating, we enjoyed reading through Proverbs 12
and discussing some of the verses together.
Then the children colored/drew their illustrations...

Our selected verse and illustration...

The lil' girls colored one like this
and Will drew his own...

Later, after giving Will a haircut
and bathing the girls,
Will and I read aloud in history
and he worked on some copywork...

Ally worked more in her Chemistry and Worldview...

It was a pretty productive day.

It was a blessing to be in the Lord's house this evening!
And, now, I look forward to a good night's sleep. ;o)

Hope y'all enjoyed your day!

That's exactly what I love about homeschooling, too! Y'all had a very productive day! The squash, zucchini, and "coocumbers" look yummy!
I love your Fall tablecloth, too!

Madeleine said...

Ah. Life is good and GOD is great.

Lovely to see the peacefulness and love in the family.

And can I just say, I have yet to have Samuel do any copy work!! I forgot about that past!!

Godd thing you mentioned it! lol.

oh...we have 2 bird-feeders and 2 hummingbird feeders in our backyard and love to watch the birds/hummingbirds come and go!
It is so much fun...especially when we get a green parrot or something!

Karen ~ Thank you. I got the tablecloth at kmart. ;o)

Madeleine ~ Thank you. ;o) I am trying to be more diligent in copywork this year. My sweet son has mixed emotions but we keep it short. ;o)

Kim ~ How fun! We love to watch the birds. We were unable to attract hummingbirds this year, though. I'm interested to know what the green bird is. hmmm

Amy ~ Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed peeking into our day. ;o)
