This week during our Homeschool Theme day we worked on the planets and made a planet themed craft. This week we learned about the planets in our solar system and learned some facts about them. My son has been working on space themed lessons on a website we are currently reviewing. My daughter has worked on Planet Express Lapbook from A Journey Through Learning.
One of the DVDs I picked up from the Library was The Cat In The Hat Learns A Lot About Space. We used a book that my friend had on hand about planets and we also used a book that came in a set as well. Both of the books had great information about the planets. We did the craft as we were working on the planets.
The Plans I Have For You Devotional is a 90 day devotional written by best selling children’s book author Amy Parker and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton. This set teaches and inspires kids to dream about their future, to focus on faith, love and joy, and recognize that God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of us.
I have some exciting news to share. Well at least it is exciting to me. The last couple weeks have been super busy for us with appointments. We approached our Pastor and his wife and talked to him about us getting remarried or renewing our vows. When we got married we just did it at the courthouse.
This time around we are going to do a wedding that we didn’t have. The only difference is that we are going to keep it simple and small. We have been busy planning and creating a guest list. We have limited space, so their is limited guests. I am totally fine with that. I think I am more excited just to be able to share my joy!
Since we are still working on our winter theme, we decided that we would head to the Wildlife Sanctuary and observe our surroundings. The point of this field trip was to observe how it looked as well as how the animals acted and what they were doing.
We started out in the building and let the kids burn off some energy. We also did an indoor scavenger hunt since many of the things we wouldn’t find out doors this time of year. Once finished we decided to take a walk toward the wolves. We didn’t go past the wolves because we were running out of time. It’s ok because what we did see was amazing.
