This week was about one of our favorite things:  camping!  Actually, it was more like 2 weeks since we ventured out for some real life experiences in a cabin on the Frio River.  We always have a blast there and I took over 1,000 photos with my real camera (coming soon).  Instead of our usual sensory bin, we opted this week to do camping scenes that we made out of paper and other manipulatives.  I love that as the week went on they grew and changed and were moved all around.  Taryn and Jude also painted story stones.  You can see a video of Taryn telling part of her story using stones here.  I think Jonah’s favorite was the pretend campfire Taryn and I set up for him in the living room.  Complete with cotton ball marshmallows.  It was great practice for the real thing just a few days later.  I love that homeschooling gives us the flexibility to get out in to the world more.  To go, do, see, touch, travel and explore.

Day 129 | 365 Project

129

Our dog thinks she’s a person. While we were camping she insisted on tubing down the river on Ty’s lap. If we had her on the leash she’d whine constantly to go out with him. As soon as we let her go she’d go jump on. You know, cause it’s totally normal to tube down the river with a 60 lb dog on your lap. Crazy dog.
