We have started!

So we started our new curriculum 'My Father's World: Exploring Countries and Cultures' this week. On Day 3 of week one and loving it so far! The picture to the left is the our table all set up to start school today. I know it looks light, and we love that! The only thing missing from the table is the math workbooks (we use Math U See).

The girls loved filling out the passports yesterday and pretending to 'mail' them to Daddy (who is president of the Passport Office). They should get them back in 2 weeks after we have finished studying North America. Today we will be exploring the backyard for science and going on a nature walk.
The other picture is the John 3:16 poster we made for week 1. It reminds us that God loves the WHOLE world and to pray for the people in other countries who don't know Him, or are not yet saved. The girls had fun with that one. Here's to another great day of home schooling!
