A Picture A Day: January 11, 2013

We began our National Homeschool Book Awards Class this morning.  Our featured book this month is Icefall by Matthew Kirby.  We loved it here at our homeschool.  Of course, it probably helps that we are of Icelandic descent!!  AH and his friends work on the craft project.

A Picture A Day: January 10, 2013

Today we get two pictures of what we did this afternoon.  This has been a heavy week of field trips and classes and this afternoon we had some time to just chill.  We read the third Brotherband Chronicles book (The Brotherband Chronicles: The Hunters by John Flanagan) together and then we each did our own thing.  AH decided that he would just play Xbox 360 live and I decided to cook!

Bolivian Quinoa Stew for dinner!

A Picture A Day: January 9, 2013

We signed up for the National Homeschool Book Awards Class held locally here in the Twin Cities.  Today was our first session, a field trip to Engebretson's for a norse mythology story time. Perfect for the first book we are reading: Icefall by Matthew J. Kirby.  What a lovely morning!  As we left she wrote the runes of our names.
