Weekly Wrap Ups: Mexico, Butterflies & Working Out Kinks

Painted Lady
Greetings!  Another end to another busy week.  While we are resting, here's a recap!




This week's geography moved us to Mexico.  Putting the Mexican flag in our 'passport', my daughter and I were off and reading stories of missionaries serving in this country, more about general life AND making tacos for dinner.


Geography from Creek Edge Press


In order to work the kinks out of the schedule, I went ahead and started my middle and high schooler's on their next year's history/literature work.  I'll go into more details next week - but, let's just say an extended dry run was prudent and helpful!

Trial run for my middle schooler and high schooler!


While the older kids were busy dissecting frogs for Biology, the younger kids took a trip to the local Butterfly Encounter for some winged fun!

Along with several varieties of butterflies, we enjoyed gorgeous flowers and birds.

In the 'feeding room', they had 'synthetic nectar' (Gatorade) to feed the Painted Lady butterflies.  Just dip your finger in the cup and voila!
