Nature Study

No matter where you live you have nature all around you. It's one of the easiest things to study because you never really have to leave your own yard. 
Since our move we have new trees to discover and more birds all around. I can't wait to get started with our nature studies here.

If I had to recommend 2 books for that it would be these.

Paired with these notebooking pages from here.

And then there is this wonderful blog that has great resources as well.

Do you already have a nature study going? If so what? Do you have any fun resources to share? Please let me know. I'm always open to new stuff.

Getting Back in the Swing!

I thought I'd check in for those of you who actually read this blog.
We are finally moved into our new home but it's been non stop since December. "Official" homeschooling has been sporadic but in that time my 8 year old decided to take it upon himself to polish up his reading. He's doing wonderful! Better than when I was sitting down with him each day. LOL! I guess you never know when that light is going to come on huh? 
I'm hoping to get back into a regular routine soon as it just makes the day go smoother.

Do you have any exciting homeschool projects going on?
