Let me just say that I didn't know it at the time, but upon getting a link for the book I found that this book gets great reviews. The ratings for this book - from homeschoolers and teachers- are five stars. I am seriously considering purchasing this book to have on hand for the next several years.
I actually picked it up as a craft book, as I thought it might have some nice autumn activities, but it turns out that we're using it for an early American history book, as it's filled with lots of interesting information.
This morning we learned some about The Mayflower, about the Roanoke colonists and their disappearance (and of course speculated on what might have happened to them), The Church of England (which is sometimes called the Anglican church - which I've always wondered about), more about John Smith, and about the pilgrims being Separatists partly because they were tired of the inconsistencies of religious beliefs of kings and queens-- such as being beheaded for owning an English translated bible while living under a Ruler who preferred the Latin translation.)
We line six jack o'lanterns across our livingroom's picture window-- to haunt, dance, and howl as they will.
And ollyin'.And lessons.
and battle-scar making.
We made our way to another library for a Physics class-- we got to see lots of fun with liquid nitrogen. Heh.Many mucho cool experiments.
Dinner and home, then.
It's barely eight o'clock and it feels like ten. It's dark and cold and we're ready for slippers and a snuggle.
Well... why not?
Guess that's that, then.
