Zoo! May 13, 2011

Homeschooling journal: We had a good trip to the zoo with Katie, Cylis, and Micah this morning.  Lucy told Cylis about the Spanish moss, and we saw the tiger and black bears moving around and the white alligators up close.  Most of the time we let the kids play in the water at Monkey Hill, then the […]

January 25, 2010 – Church and State

In the space of an hour tonight, the girls’ imaginative play included two hilarious and touching games.  The first was “Mass”, complete with Goldfish and water intincture for communion, the girls taking turns as priest, and a fantastic version of “Hosanna to Jesus the King” of Lucy’s own creation. When that was finished, Lucy announced that we were going […]

Homeschooling Journal: Dug Christmas books out of attic and read Lily the Lost and Found Lamb, Merry Christmas Strega Nona and Cajun Night Before Christmas.  The girls indulged in a Veggie Tales Christmas movie.  We started the Christmas-tree-setting-up process – sweeping and assembling stand parts are done.

Homeschooling Journal: Continuing to try and convince Samantha that she doesn’t want to keep wearing a wet diaper, that the floor is not the appropriate place to pee, and that clothes are very effective at keeping you warm. Play-doh and cookie-cutter session before lunch. Lucy came to Mass and got to hear about the Immaculate […]

Only two months since the last entry… Homeschooling Journal Lucy’s BD party was Sunday (the 5th), so cleaning, baking, pizza making, and socializing all occured. Lots of dress-up, including one “queen” being chased by one “tiger”. The manger scenes are out, and were in constant use for a couple of days.  Lucy remarked several times […]
