Ella, Ada, and I had fun completing a Narnia unit from HearthSong (on Etsy). We didn't follow the unit exactly... we left a lot out and added in a few things, but that's the way we do units. Ada had fun coloring this unicorn shield from the unit, and we finally got it glued into her journal.

One of my favorite things about homeschooling are the frequent field trips. Since the younger girls and I are working through The Good and Beautiful’s Reptiles, Amphibians, and Fish unit, we went to a park to look for these animals (O was at an event with her friends). We saw hundreds of turtles, but we spent most of our time dodging protective and aggressive swans!!

Both of our older girls are taking cooking/baking classes at our co-op this year, and we are all reaping the benefits. This week E made a Nutella Sun Pastry. She used 2 sheets of puff pastry, Nutella, and an egg. It was SO good! I’m hoping she’ll make one for the family for our Easter lunch!

In 1998, Elliott and I visited my dad who lived in Kiev, Ukraine at the time. It was an amazing experience for us. The people are so kind, and the city is beautiful. We are having a hard time tearing ourselves away from watching nonstop news coverage of the war, and our hearts are breaking for the Ukrainians. It’s so incomprehensible and senseless, and we wish there was more we could do.
