Starting with our history, we spent a week learning more about the removal of prayer from public schools and the legalization of abortion and the impact it had on society ~ The breakdown of the family!
|Selected readings celebrating the wonder of life. Hinds Feet on High Places --- a WONDERFUL Christian Allegory without witchcraft!|
And then onto the 70's, Nixon's presidency and Watergate.
Did you celebrate Pi day? (3.14 = March 14th). We did!
|Homemade Cheesecake compliments of The Hubby!|
After neglecting hands-on learning for FAR too long, we broke out the model kits and paints!
My boys assembled the kits and I helped draw in the camouflaging.
|Fighter Jet kit from Consumer Crafts!|
My oldest LOVES the assembly, but not the painting. So, he passed his plane to his sister and let her do whatever she wanted.
|My daughter's rendition of a fighter plane!|
At first, she was going to do a 'pink' camouflaging, but, was inspired by a hummingbird instead!
Finally we got more done on our lapbooking.... My three oldest have done Multiplication Pizza Party from Hands of a Child in the 3rd grade. I have to say, it's one of our favorites!
|Learning volume with lapbooks!|
|More multiplication fun with lapbooks!|
My boys added to their Modern American History Lapbook (also from Hands of a Child) as well!

Another trip took us to Reptile Discovery Center where we got to see venom extractions on rattlesnakes, cobras and Cottonmouths!
Then, on to the Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant for a fun lunch. Pancakes cooked and served tableside!
