~~~~~Heat Wave~~~~~~

Miami is breaking records today with the heat. I believe they said on the news with the heat index the temperature was 120F Ouch! That's Hot! We still set out early this morning we went bike riding and then fishing at the canal. We also borrowed a few new critters for our Pets In A Jar to study and draw. We have some new butterflies and two new lizards visiting with us now.

We are continuing on with our Nature Study and drawing in our journals. And we also started the Weaver Genesis One. It is a study of Chemistry and the book of Genesis. I really enjoyed sitting down with the children and digging into some new science. We also learned some new things about creation vs. evolution. And we did a few experiments with polymers. We made some polymer worms and a bouncing ball.

Here are some snap shots from our stomping in the urban wildlands today

Psalm103
Let all that I am praise the Lord with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Photobucket
Let all that I am praise the Lord may I never forget the good things he does for me.
Photobucket
He forgives all my sins, he heals all my diseases
Photobucket
He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies
Photobucket
He fills my life with good things, My youth renewed like the eagles!
Photobucket
Praise the Lord , everything he has created everything in his kingdom.

Let all that I am praise the Lord!

  4. Again, very cool. Charlotte Mason had this idea about a foundation for Science being reverence and understanding of God's earth first before taking it apart to figure out how it works. You're family is doing that in such a great way! The heatwave thing hit us today, too. That I could do without, though!

  5. Wow! That is hot!! We're just happy to finally be hitting the 80's.

    I love the nature journals! I want my young 'uns to be doing them this summer, but we haven't even made it out to buy them notebooks yet. Hopefully this week!

    Love the photos and the Psalm too!

  7. Dear Heather,

    Beautiful pictures, and verses to go with them! I love the drawing of the dragonfly; you have some artistic talent at your place! I can't believe it's that hot there already, wow! I think we've hit 72 or so today, which seems hot after all the rain!

    Oh, I've created a blog for my creative writings :), but still have to link it to my blog and put things on it. I love your husband's middle name, and his brother's! Is Aragorn his first or middle name? My brother named his dogs Frodo, Sam, and Rosie, and my mom has a Pippin, so we're covered for hobbits except Bilbo and Merry!

    Love,
