Everyone is practicing their music for homeschool band and enjoying the challenge. Bet ya never thought I'd say that?! We're beginning a new cycle of describing each country in our FLAGS (Human Geography) binder. The topic of who a country trades with or fights against has come up and I said that we should really delve further into why a neighboring country should fight at wars with said country. The Daddy is headed to Africa next week and we're excited, but praying about it. G#1 is enjoying the Fallacy Detective book and discussion of logic with the Daddy. All three Gs were outside with me to clean up the garden and put everything away for winter. The ceiling fans are cleaned and turned, and electric blankets are being used.No more mountains of zinnias and marigolds. The seed heads were collected for next year's garden and bird feeder. The trash cans serve as a raised garden and are cleaned up. The hoses are drained and put away. All because the kids worked with me to get it all done.
