Clean off camera time

It is the end of the month and time to clean off my digital camera. The homeschooling memorable events from this month would include the green snake that I already posted about, our Greek study, and the trip to the 'rocky creek'.

Greek Study
We are slowly reading about and watching a few documentaries about the Ancient Greeks. We find ourselves often with three books open at a time comparing the different pictures of life back then.

A couple weeks ago MB dressed as a Greek girl would have, minus the head wrapping (I'm not that talented)

And we tried to build a model of a house based upon a few pictures. We got it about halfway built before a freak hurricane (named EM) in the Agean Sea took out our house.

'Big Rock Park'

Even longer ago we took a Tuesday and headed down to the creek to wade and do some rock hunting. The weather was great, not too hot. The girls had a blast and Jr. fell asleep in the carrier.

There is something about watching them walk ahead of me like this that just makes my heart go pitter-pat. I love watching them do things together.

EM's favorite thing to do is find the biggest rocks she can carry and see how large of a splash she can make.

MB goes off into the woods to examine the trees and plants. I bet she is also looking for more bugs. She uses those exposed roots in the bank as a ladder to the other side.

Look at all those rocks to look through.

We never get out of there unscathed - K reacts horribly to bug bites. The rest of us might have one or two small bites. Her entire body was covered in hives. All I have to do though is pour clean water over them and by the time we made it back to the car they were nearly gone.

At least once a week they ask to go to the 'Big Rock Park'.
