For Every Season: a Book Review

For Every Season
I was so excited to have a chance to review For Every Season by Cindy Woodsmall. A while back I did a review for the first book in this series, A Season For Tending. I had such a hard time getting into the first one. About three-quarters of the way through I was finally hooked. I got the second book at the library and loved it. When I had the chance to review the next book, I knew I had to take it.

The Amish Vines and Orchards series has been great. There are so many characters to follow, but my mind was always focused on the story of Samuel, Jacob, and Rhoda. Through out the whole book I have been rooting for Rhoda and hoping that Cindy wouldn't have her stay with who I felt was the wrong brother. Without ruining the ending, I was very happy with how she rounded out this book. Things simmer down to the point where more could be fun but I am satisfied with the ending for Rhoda...then I kept turning through the apple recipes and found the ad for book 4! I don't know how I am going to wait till April to read more, but I guess I will have to.

I read this on my Kindle and I was very pleased with it. Last time there were some issues with the formatting. This third book had very good formatting. All the pretty frills are gone, but they are also not messing up the layout of the page and that makes for much easier reading.

I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing to review.

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.
