I am not a prolific blogger, so when I reach a hundredth post, it feels like an accomplishment. Therefore, in honor of reaching this 300th post milestone, I thought about stepping back in time in segments of 300.
300 seconds= five hours ago Something we have been working on homeschool is creating an alphabet book. Each day we take a letter and look through the house for things that start with that letter. We arrange everything together, I take a picture and K composes a sentence describing all the parts. When we get all the pictures done, I plan to make them into a Snapfish or Shutterfly photo book. Today was the letter Q. Since we don't have many Q items in the house, K put on her Halloween costume and a paper crown and drew a picture of a quail. We have a lot of these birds around here; we're always entertained by their laughing call and the way they often run where they're going instead of flying-- their little head feathers bobbing. So the picture for today shows a *quiet* queen holding a quail, surrounded by quilts.
300 hours= 12.5 days ago About two weeks ago I found a child camera that was given to K a couple years ago; in our moves it had been packed away and forgotten. When I found it and replaced the batteries, the kids had a ball taking pictures. It's interesting to see the world through their eyes. Most of the time though, they like taking close-ups of the most mundane things. Here's a sampling.
Finally, if you are in the mood for a vacation, I found this this lovely cottage in northern France you can rent that was built in the year 1711.
