My new fave place to spend a couple hours (thank you, mom, for watching the kids) is Half Price Books. TRIPLE LOVE IT!! Plus they are having a 20% off everything sale for Labor Day...double score! I picked up a few things and had a blast digging through shelf after shelf of books. I am even more excited about THIS! Anybody want to join me Wednesday night to battle the other book crazed homeschool moms? I bet if we tag team we could come home victorious! You know how those homeschoolers can get.
I also picked up this fun little game at Target. We haven't played it yet, but I am excited to give it a go.
Here is our timeline so far. We are doing Mystery of History vol. 1. I am NOT doing my timeline as suggested by the author of the book. I am a rebel...a loner in that respect. I wanna do it my way. *Yes, I just broke out into song. Yes, that is a hole in our wall.*
Here are the 7 days of creation...ok, 6 days of actual work and 1 day of rest. Notice the bloody shark on day 5. Apparently he was in a fight that day thanks to Eli's active imagination. Next to that is Adam and Eve with their leaf clothes. Jubal with a harp and flute. Tubal-Cain with stripes of bronze and iron.
