Last month I had the chance to take some classes at Swanstone Gardens in Green Bay. The first class I took was a mosaic birdbath and the second class was a kids day and my daughter and I made a mosaic bird feeder. If you live in Northeast Wisconsin or you plan to visit, I highly suggest checking Swanstone Gardens out. The place is beautiful!
Have you ever wanted to create your own unit study? I have created a couple unit studies in the past for the kids. I wasn’t sure what to all put in and felt maybe something was missing. I also wondered what do the kids need to master in each grade. Hewitt Homeschooling has a wonderful teacher resource called Joy of Discovery and Learning Objectives for Grades K – 8. I feel truly blessed to have had the chance to review this as now I know the direction to go and feel a lot more confident in creating unit studies.
One of the things I have been wanting to work on with my son was book reports. I have held off for a while because he has trouble with writing. I remember doing book reports as a child, however I never knew there were different types of book reports. It seemed we always did just one type. We had the chance to review a product from Analytical Grammar called Beyond the Book Report.

I am not a fan of the heat and humidity. I would rather have fall all year round if I could. We have been very blessed where I am with the lake breeze that we haven’t needed to use our air conditioning very much. Today was kind of humid. My favorite thing about this time of year is growing my garden, the farmers markets, and the orchards.
