Silas' Fathers Day Card

Silas made this at church on Sunday for his daddy. I thought it was pretty cute. It is so funny to see some of the answers they come up with.

Blueberry Jam

The girls and I made blueberry jam this morning. After pulling the jars out of the canning pot, I set them on a towel to cool and set. When I came back to check on them, I found this:

Lizzy had made a label for each jar :) I may have an entrepreneur on my hands.

Felicity Unit Study

Lizzy and Sadie love the American Girl Doll books and even have a couple of the dolls. So, they were excited when they were invited to do a unit study w/ a few other girls from our homeschool group. One of the moms was gracious enough to open up her home and teach the girls from these books. They would have two weeks to complete their book and then they would come together and discuss the life of Felicity, such as the political views of the characters in the book, how the girls dressed during that period, and what girls were taught and allowed to study.

The are doing a timeline here:

Learning to write their names in calligraphy using feathers:

Learning the proper way to serve tea:

Conducting an interview of the characters:

The also learned a couple of dances that were popular during that time. It was a lot of fun for them.
