Taking School Outside...

Anna started some new studies she will be studying Shakespeare and we are using the book by Edith Nesbit called Beautiful Stories From Shakespeare and the corresponding Notebook from living books...and then she is also doing a study on Animal Homes which is from Light Home Publications.

We decided with the Sun shining although it is a little cool we would take school and head outside...

apparently Wyatt likes Shakespeare...who knew????? Although he really needs a course on etiquette..

And for our study on Animal Homes we decided to go on a hike to try and find some animal homes right in our backyard....

Here are some of the pretty sounds we heard when we were outside....

May your blessings outnumber
The Shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Have A Wonderful Weekend ~Love The Watts Family~

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth~

  4. What wonderful homeschooling! I love the nature walks. I have been having my children to nature studies each week and we head out in the middle of nowhere to draw and discover! Hope you are doing well. I will write soon! *hugs*
