School Has Begun

School started at our house on the 23rd of August. I had a fun day planned for the girls. We played a game so they could find their back-packs with new books, pencils and treats inside. We made cookies and just had a good day.

We have been doing a unit study and lap-book on Egypt. The lap-book is still in progress. So far we have learned about mummification. Emily's activity was to mummify her Barbie and make a death mask for it.

We also made Egyptian headbands. You can't see Lindsey's wonderful coloring on hers, but it was very cute. We have been working on making canopic jars out of clay and beaded jewelry.

Field trip with our homeschooler friends at the Dinosaur museum. You can't see the fun sand and water Emily is playing in, but it was lots of fun.

Love that face!

And thankfully we have been able to get a lot of schooling done because our sweet Willis does a lot
