May School Update

Boy, do I have some catching up to do!  We've completed 8 units of study since our last school update.  During our long winter, we were "milking" kindergarten for all it's worth.  Then when spring slowly showed it's long-awaited face, we were so ready to be outside but had to painstakingly endure many rainy days inside.  One good thing about that is we were able to get a lot more school time in.  So, here's a brief catch-up of the units that we've completed and a couple of other activities.

Carysse is showing off her paper plate creations during our
Homeschool Group's Project Night.

We were "rock & rolling" with many of these great ideas & these too.

Btw, You know you're a homeschool mom if...
the neighbors are wondering what you're doing in the rain at 7:45am while you gather rocks from your landscape.J

Each May, the Aquarium has it's Homeschool Week which offers a super great discount.  We went as a family and happened to see my close friend, Sarah & her son, there.    

Jewel Unit

We made these special butterfly treats for her Butterfly birthday party.

Our Homeschool Group hosted a Track & Field Day
at the end of the school year.  
I helped coordinate the kindergarten girls group.
We had such a fun time until it rained.L

She got the 3rd place ribbon for the Broad Jump;

And the 4th place ribbon for the Softball throw!

Thank you Jesus for all these sweet blessings!
