Our first attempt at Lapbooking

We are doing our first lapbook. I've heard such wonderful things about them that I thought we'd give it a try. It's on Rome. We're using the Ancient Rome Lapbook from . So far the boys seem to like it. We've been reading out of Who Were the Romans and The Roman News as well as Story of the World. We also have the DVD "Drive Thru History Rome if You Want to."

We should be done in the next week. I'll post pics when we finish. We have a 3 day art class this week by Barry Stebbing, the author of the art curriculum "How Great Thou Art." So our week will be short on the other subjects. So glad I finally figured out how to relax! My first year or two this would have sent me into a tizzy!

Feeling better

I think we have finally gotten rid of the flu! First my husband had it, then our 8 yr. old, then our 2 yr. old and I, and lastly our 10 yr. old. We are all feeling better.

The weather is beautiful here, you can tell spring is near. Our grass is getting green again and the trees are just starting to get leaves again. I love spring. We have all our windows open in the sunroom and are listening to the birds and feeling the breeze pass through. Love it!
