K was so excited to receive a letter in the mail “just for him!” He was super careful opening it and he was smiling a lot. He managed to read the letter almost by himself. His new penpal is H and he lives in England. K and H are the same age.
This is what happens every single time I make myself a smoothie for breakfast! I mean, I add goji berry powder, ground flaxseeds, ground chia seeds, and even spirulina! They love this stuff! I now make double the amount because they do gobble this thing down. Can’t complain! Click here to see a ton of smoothie recipes that I have been collecting.
I used to have trays with reading books for the kids on top of this bench (mostly, to keep them from climbing on it and to keep them from opening it because I have a ton of educational materials in the storage area). But now, I really want it to be our devotional/prayer area because having them sit on my lap on the floor and juggling the Bible and two wiggly kids wasn’t working. Now, they each sit on either side of me and everyone is happy (mostly, my legs, haha).
Here he is, faithfully practicing writing his name so he can “autograph” some more postcards for the exchange.
This is K’s letter to his penpal, H, from England. He did a great job! (The first word is “Hi”)
This is the little display we made to put up the most recent letter from K’s penpal. I think we’ll be making one with K’s name and mailing it to H, so he can do the same at home.

This is the map of Europe that we have in our schoolroom. I used tags to show where friends or family are in all of Europe.
Below, you can see our map of the U.S. and tags of family that live here (and Mexico).
|We are starting to receive more postcards! Yay!|
I found this book at a homeschooling sale. Retails for $22, but I bought it for only $2! What a buy! I love it! I am going to look at the other books on the back to see if I can find them for cheap. I personally like to buy at www.valorebooks.com because I have been able to find incredible deals there. I’ve ooked in other sites, but Valore Books has the very best deals, at least for what I’ve been looking for. For example, I just bought the entire set of the Chronicles of Narnia for $5.50, whereas other sites start at $23.
