In Homeschooling:::Jasmine is learning about diseases in Health, for Social Studies she worked on a pamphlet highlighting a natural resource that both Canada and the US share, she picked Uranium :)

Looking around the house:::Lola is laying on the couch licking the air (true story lol), Jasmine is still fast asleep and Nicholas is playing with the turtle. It's kinda dark in here this morning, I'm wondering if it's going to be cloudy again. Through my kitchen window I can see the birds flying in and out of the feeder :)
From the camera:::
Something fun to share:::One of the greatest things we love about homeschooling is learning any day, whether it's a week day or a weekend and no matter where we are. Yesterday we all built birdhouses, the kids were so excited, they got to make their own and they're not perfect of course, but it doesn't matter because they learned about birds, they learned about wood, they learned about tools and they were able to put those into practice. I'm doing a post later to show you the pics :) It was a lot of fun for us all, so just remember that spending time with your family doesn't have to mean going out and spending money :)
On my prayer list:::Our little Lola, her eye is doing SO much better but it's still not 100%. I pray that it continues to improve and hopefully heal completely.
Bible verse, Devotional:::Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
