That's it! As you can see below, we harvested about half of our peas. This weekend, we will harvest the other half. Then, it's time to pull-out the peas, and start summer vegetables.
We have been doing a bit more with nature study, some we found and some found us.
I am drawing and observing the wild grapes near us (which are perfectly edible).
One morning a flying squirrel was on the brick wall of our porch. It stayed there all day. As it was quite young, and as the cats showed a little too much interest, we were able to place a cage over it. We thought that is must be tame, but were careful to not touch it. We gave it fresh pear. After eating, the tired squirrel rested on its haunches in the corner and looked at us with timid, but kind eyes. That night it escaped, as did our little adventure.
As far as homeschool goes, science has been the most difficult. I just haven't found a science series that I love. Any science curriculum advice?
I am wanting to challenge myself to read three books (one easy, medium, and hard). Again, this is going to take some thought. Perhaps, it's worthy of its own post.
And finally, remember to continue your faithfulness in prayer. We are having nightly family devotions -and it's been a blessing. We are currently reading a rich devotional called, Honey from the Hive. Another rich resource we enjoy reading is a free magazine subscription called, "The Way of Truth".
