Homeschool Fun: Knights

Jayne's new school mate, Croci
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!
Jayne and Croci play knights! Adam even made Croci his own matching chainmail to play in.

 Adam gets in on the knight play.

Our preschool pack this week is from and one of Jayne's favorites this week is the board game. A while back I made photo bead magnets as gifts and for us and that is what we use for our pieces. They work out great for keeping track of who is who.

DIY Little Passports

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…

Talking About God: A Book Review

Talking about God is a book about having deep, spiritual conversations in a loving, non confrontational way. My favorite part of the book was the preface. It does a wonderful job of giving practical information about thing to do and not do when having these kind of conversations. The bulk of the book contains actual conversations that the authors had with people. You can see first hand how they handled some of the difficult questions that people have a tendency to ask. My husband and I had really hoped that there would be more about talking with people at the beginning, including how to actually go about inviting someone to church. The conversations here pertain mostly to people who have attended church or studies for some time and have not made the decisions to put their faith in Christ. While it is a wonderful book to learn from, those first conversations that lead a person to begin seeking God at all is what we had hoped for. I would still recommend the book. It is well written and…
