Easter

Last Saturday was the annual Easter lunch and Egg hunt at Granny and Paw-Paw's. Good food, good weather, and good times.

Food and a Nerf gun...what else does a boy need?

This girl was made for country living.


Egg huntin' time!



Benjamin spent the entire day having Nerf wars with cousin Hunter. I barely saw him.

Tapestry of Grace, Year 3, Unit Three

We wrapped up another history-filled Tapestry of Grace unit last week. I loved this Unit...I feel like I say that after every Unit! This Unit covered the mid-late 1800's. We spent a lot of time on the events leading up to the Civil War, the war, and the Reconstruction after the war. We also read about some of the important things happening in other parts of the world during that time. We learned about Florence Nightingale and Eliza Shirley. We also spent time reading about China and Japan during the mid 1800's.

For some reason, I have very few pictures but I'll share what I have. I must have slacked on taking photos this time around.

The boys made Chinese lanterns.


As always, we read so many great books. This is just a few of the books we read. My favorite thing about homeschooling is all the books we get to read, books I would never think to pick up.

We added to our President timeline. We spent several weeks on Abraham Lincoln.

We made a "wanted" poster. The boys seemed to think $537 was a big enough reward.

We completed another Unit lapbook.

The boys worked on a poster covering some of the inventions of the late 1800's.

A few weeks ago we spent the day at the Civil War Museum which was the perfect compliment to our studies. 



MeMe's

We went to visit MeMe this past weekend. It's been a good while since we have made it out there to see her. The boys always enjoy a weekend at MeMe's.

No one has a better backyard than MeMe. I would love for this to be my view every morning. 



He's so stinkin' cute.

Hallow loved the big backyard as well. She was very curious about the pond but not enough to actually jump in.

I feel like Benjamin is just begging to have his face pushed into the dirty birdbath water and I can tell Caleb is already thinking about doing it.

He loves to pose!
