Mother’s Day 2017

I normally ask Andrew to take photos of Weston and I together for Mother’s Day, but he’s not here this year. So instead, here’s a few from our Peak District trip from just before he left.

Pakenham Mill

Weston and I visited Pakenham Mill today as part of the UK’s National Mill Weekend. We were able to see some mill parts and some baby swans (also known as cygnets) before the weather turned very blustery and we decided we’d better head home.

Parkrun Junior #8

Weston ran his 8th Parkrun Junior 2k today. This was the first one he ran all by himself. I’m so proud of him! His time was 12 minutes 26 seconds.

Miss Rumphius 2017

IMG_9351Our book the last couple weeks was Miss Rumphius. Miss Rumphius grows up near the seaside listening to her grandfather’s travel stories. She vows that one day she will travel the world and then retire by the sea. Her grandfather tells her that she must also do a third thing – make the world a more beautiful place. As Miss Rumphius gets older, she does travel to many places and eventually retires to a house by the sea. It’s there that she finds a way to make the world more beautiful. She scatters bushels of lupine seeds all around her town where they grow and multiply for everyone to enjoy.

During our studies, we learned about plants, flowers, seeds, and farms. We watched several videos about photosynthesis and plant life cycles. We sprouted beans and regularly checked on our raised planter to observe our seedlings. We also discussed beauty and how we can make the world a more beautiful place.

Wr also continued our separate reading and math curriculums.
