It’s been busy as usual around here. Yesterday I hardly had time to breathe and didn’t get a chance to even do any school with my younger son. Not that he minded 🙂 We had a 4H meeting, a Cross Country meet, and violin lessons in the afternoon. To top off the already busy day, my older son woke up in the morning with conjunctivitis, so we also had to squeeze in a visit to the eye doctor and the pharmacy.

But today was much better. We were able to complete all of our morning work….get this…in the morning! Then after lunch and afternoon chores, we went to the library. When we got back I started Module 2 in Apologia General Science with my older son. I had not even looked at it and discovered that we had 2 “experiments” to do. Thankfully, the materials were simple to find and the experiments were simple too.

After that, I sent my daughter to look through the Felicity Cookbook and the Felicity Craft Book (Both American Girl books.) We’re studying Colonial times in Tapestry of Grace and she’s going to do some Colonial crafts as part of our study. We’re also planning a Colonial style meal for our Unit Celebration. She got a good start at picking out crafts she wanted to do. Then I had her make a list of the supplies that we needed to purchase. We’ve also got our menu planned for our Unit celebration. My son will be making a video about Colonial times. We’ve yet to narrow down the topic enough. But it warmed my heart to see him reading through Colonial Living by Edwin Tunis looking for ideas for his video topic.

Hopefully I’ll have some more interesting projects to show soon.

  1. Sorry about your son not feeling well. Hope he feels better soon. Sounds like you got a lot done today, that’s nice. And the colonial times studying sounds fun. 🙂


    • Thanks JoAnn. He’s doing much better now. And he really wasn’t feeling that bad. He even ran in his Cross Country meet that afternoon (and broke his record time.)

  2. Sounds like a really wonderful day. We’ve enjoyed the Felicity cookbook too 🙂


  3. Hi stopping by this morning as I have a few minutes to catch up and read a few blogs. We are studying the revolutionary War and are lucky to be able to visit Williamsburg this fall for a hands on learning experience. Should be fun.

  4. It sounds like a wonderful day. We will be getting to colonial times sometime in October. We are looking forward to it.
