This month we've decided to draw book covers of every book we read and display them on our new big bulletin board. We started on the last day of March with some Dr. Seuss books because he was born in March.
Yesterday we finished reading Mr. Popper's Penguins which is a classic that I've loved ever since I was a kid. I still think the ending is sad, even though it isn't intended to be. We also read our 25th book in the Magic Tree House series. It's hard to believe we've read so many of them!
Currently we are on a one week Spring Break for our homeschool. Next week we'll be beginning a new year! I'm looking forward to getting into all the wonderful books that arrived with our first ever Sonlight Curriculum. It's funny to me that the girls chose to take a one week break instead of jumping straight into the new year, but they don't realize how much they've been learning and doing this week. Besides reading these two books we also watched a movie about Beatrix Potter and learned more about her. We've done several art projects just for fun. They played Monopoly among other games. They've helped Penny understand some of her math homework. They've been memorizing scripture like crazy for this final week of their AWANA's contest. Danya had her regular guitar lesson, and they all wrote Thank You letters to Anna (the guitar teacher) for the bags full of clothes she passed down to them. Boy, good thing they didn't do any "school work" this week. (hee hee)
