The North Shore

We had a great time up in Duluth with Papa and Karma! I took a lot of pictures, so this post will be mostly just pictures. I don't have much time to write, since I am in the middle of making dinner, and we have to leave for R.U. Kids' Club in less than an hour!

Homeschool Supplies

Thanks to a very generous contribution from some loving family members (you know who you are;-), we were able to purchase everything that our hearts desired for the 2010-2011 Crafton Homeschool year! This should be the best year yet, and we have so many fun activities planned!



Christy's core curriculum will be online this year with Monarch: http://www.aophomeschooling.com/monarch/overview.php

Becca's core curriculum will continue to be Christian Light Education:

However, we will supplement both girls' core curriculum with God's Design for Science: http://www.answersingenesis.org

Also, we will be teaching History and Geography to both girls at the same time with Beautiful Feet Books: http://www.bfbooks.com

Health, Phy. Ed., and Art will also be taught simultaneously to both girls, thus saving us some time.

Here are some of Sam's school supplies for this upcoming year. We chose activities from My Father's World: http://www.mfwbooks.com/toddler_presch.htm and Christian Light Education.

More Water Fun

This has been a great Summer for playing in the water! We set up this little sprinkler, and the kids had so much fun! The sprinkler is actually designed for babies and toddlers, but it was a hit even with our bigger kids! Daniel just watched from the sidelines, since he isn't too sure about it yet. We are thankful that we have a nice yard to play in! :-)
