We’ve had a nice couple of days again, so we’ve spent some time outdoors.  We read about pollination in Exploring Creation with Botany.  My 8 yo daughter made her notebook page outside.

Here she is working on her page.

And her completed page.

She used a page from the Basic-plus set of Notebooking Pages from Notebookingpages.com.   I was really proud of the job that she did.


My older son much prefers making his notebook pages on the computer.  He’s a terrific artist, but he prefers typing to writing so much that he doesn’t like to do notebooking on paper.  So, for the most part, I let him use the computer.

I trimmed my lavender plant (a lot) and have lots of lavender drying in the attic.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it all.  I might use it in a wreath if it dries well.  DD wants to put some in soap.  I’m not sure what I need to do with it first to use in soap.  I have the  Your Backyard Herb Garden. I need to check out what to do with dried lavender leaves in there.


Then I cranked up the Mantis tiller (well, I can’t crank it, I had to wait for dh) and tilled up a little patch for spinach.  This is quite an experiment for me.  I’ve not had great success with gardening in the past, but I really want to try it again.  We have tomato and pepper plants that we’re growing from seed in the light hut.  So far one tomato plant has sprouted.

  1. Your children's notebooking pages turned out so nice! 🙂 We are just beginning to learn about notebooking. I think we will start one soon as we bought some seeds to plant.

  2. Great notebooking pages! 🙂 Too bad they're not at Flickr so you can add them to our notebooking group. thanks for sharing.

  3. Your kiddos did a great job. Thanks for sharing, and tell them to keep up the good work.



  4. The kids did a wonderful job! That's the purpose of homeschooling. The important is that they will learn at their own way.
