Time to practice building what we've learned about during the year of Grammar Stage Physics and stay out of the way when the rocket goes off in the back yard! Quick: Who can name all three of Newton's Laws of Motion? Remember when we visited his gravesite at Westminster Abbey in September?  Pictures of rocket project coming soon!

Latin American countries cultural geography is complete with the aid of this coloring book, the World Flag database at and the notebook pages from Homeschooling with Index cards. Next year, Asia. Well, it only makes sense after we began with the United States, and continued with Canada, Europe, Africa. We will need to practice these place names and cultural information at Sheppard Software over the summer.

Beginning New Summer Study

Our Community Bible Study is complete for the school year, so we are beginning to read aloud and discuss this book by Lee Strobel and Rob Suggs called The Case for Christ.  One of my Gs noticed immediately the nail hole in the hand print. I've been looking at this book for several years waiting to discuss it with the kids and didn't notice that in the image.

It's been a wonderful year of study in the books of Daniel, 1 & 2 Peter and Colossians.  I never dreamt how applicable Colossians would be in my life. Have you read it lately?
