Some of the week's reading:
|Selected reading about WWII|
In addition, we took in a video documentary on Pearl Harbor and more of Vision Forum's D-Day and the Provision of God.
Finally, we worked on our Modern American History lapbook! It was actually better that we didn't do each little bit at a time. The boys had a much better overview of the flow of the war and were able to understand and write more information about what they had learned over the past weeks.

In spite of the neighborhood cats, I'm happy to say that the Victory Garden is coming along.
Last weekend my daughter and I were out and about and wandered into our local pet store. It was adoption weekend, so, we went to take a look. Among the kitties, puppies, bunnies and hamsters was a Dumpy Frog and a tarantula. Now, I could have been the coolest Mom on the block had I taken the tarantula home. While I liked the tarantula, IN its' cage, I remembered the many times that our pets escaped....so, with that we choose the Dumpy Frog.
