Way back in April we had a homeschool geography fair. This was the second year we participated in the fair and it was so great. The girls researched Scotland. They did everything totally independently, from gathering their research to making their board and delicious Scottish cakes. Some friends even lent them real Scottish kilts to wear! They also had a video on display of the making of Haggis, a famous Scottish food that is renowned for its odd (disgusting?) assortment of ingredients shoved into a sheep stomach to be steamed to Haggis perfection. They had people vote if they would try Haggis or not. Not won...
When they had raised about $100.00 they brought it to the pantry. They got to have a tour and talk with some of the veterans and volunteers. They sang a patriotic song for everyone and we all pledged allegiance together. It was very moving, to say the least.
How Great Thou Art. It was a three day class and it was amazing. I learned so much just listening! The kids really enjoyed it. It taught them a lot and they were so enthusiastic about what they had learned. They sell lots of great art curriculum and we were blessed to be able to purchase one for this coming year. I can't wait to get into it!
We celebrated the Fourth of July back in my home town . The kids participated in the parade as the characters from the Wizard of Oz. They looked so awesome. They collectively won a prize for prettiest.
