Just another day

Just another beautiful day here in western Ma. Ricky flew threw school today because he wanted to spend the day outside. We tried having school outside but he has a hard time concentrating, unless it's a craft. I think at the end of this month I will slow down with table school work (maybe 2-3 days a week instead of 5) and focus more on unit studies and field trips. I am currently attempting to gather information for our first lapbook, the theme is going to be cowboys. I'm really excited about starting a lapbook but at the same time I'm alittle nervous too.
After school we enjoyed the afternoon outside. We studied insects on this giant maple tree in our front yard...Caila found a caterpillar and managed to squish it... and we also made a caterpillar habitat so we can watch and record the life changes of a caterpillar. All in all it was a great day!!
Here is a pic of our catterpillar hut...


  1. Looks like so much fun! We did a butterfly garden and came home to our butterfly's out. The kids are loving it and seeing them. We had lots of fun on vacation doing nature studies! Love the photos! :)

  2. Oh Jenn,
    I know you will have a blast with the lapbook. Nothing to be nervous about...no stern teacher looking down over your shoulder...hehehe!!!

    Can't wait to see it!



Oh please let me know you stopped by. I love to read comments on my blog:)
