The True Bride (conclusion)


On the second night there was a gown that glowed like the moon and a crescent of jewels to adorn her hair. The prince was entranced by her beauty this second night and forgot his other bride completely, but still did not remember his true bride, Elise. The prince danced with Elise alone until the night drew to a close and the princess took her leave.

The last night Elise found a gown that glittered like all the stars of heaven above and adorned herself with glittering diamonds to match. The prince took her arm the moment she entered the room and as they danced their first dance of the evening, the prince asked, "Who are you, my darling? I feel as though I have known you before." "Have you forgotten," she replied, "What I did when you left me?" She leaned toward him and kissed his left cheek. At once, a fog lifted from the prince’s eyes and he embraced his true bride. "I must stay here no longer," he declared and they left the ball and rode home to their own palace.

When they arrived they saw that the apple tree was in full bloom. Hundreds of glow worms were upon its branches, making the tree shine in the dark night. Elise and the prince were married that very night under the apple tree and they lived happily ever after.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
