Nature Studies

Our adventures in homeschooling this week have been nature studies (as well as F and the number 6).

We found a dead bee in our windowsill which Eleanore found fascinating. She loved seeing his tiny hairs under the magnifying glass.

We also found a snail out by our pond which has been great fun to watch. We brought him in for a few days to get a closer look. We will take him back out before we leave on our next camping trip.

We have also managed to get all of the garden in finally. No pictures yet, but this year we planted potatoes, sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, Swiss chard, kale, eggplant, broccoli, cabbage, peas, zucchini, winter squash, pickling and slicing cucumbers, carrots, gourds, and pumpkins.

And just for fun, here is the outfit Eleanore picked out today.

In case you can’t tell, those are black leggings with neon stripes…
