Touch the fish, Colby!
Tuesday: We were still camping Tuesday. We read some school books and did lots of nature study. The kids played and played in the woods. We worked on some navigation, finding our way around in the trees, and did a lot of plant identification. They were happy to find some gooseberries to munch- very sour, green gooseberries, but still yummy!
Wednesday: We headed home from the mountains, and on the way we stopped by a river so Jeff could teach the kids how to pan for gold. After we got home the kiddos did school all afternoon while I put away camping gear and washed laundry. We did about a half day, getting in all the core subjects but skipping things like Spanish, music, and poetry.

Saturday: Things went really good today. We went on a nature walk early, and noticed how quickly the corn has grown. We talked about wind pollination and many other things. We got started with school at a good time and sped right through. I had us stop for lunch before we were all starving for once. After we ate, we did our house-cleaning chores right away instead of waiting till the learning was done. It worked nicely that way, and was a relief to know it wasn't hanging over our heads for later. Spanish went really well today, and I am loving our new book. Caiden even said spelling was his favorite thing of the day, which shocked us all, even him!
