Art Study~

Our Simply Charlotte Mason is definitely one of our favorite weekly studies, and we are on our second this year: Van Gogh~
I added a few go along books to enrich our study including this book with a project at the end~
Everyone chose to draw their own masterpiece then add a starry night background~



The Ankerich Van Goghs~
We keep all our art study materials in this basket from Target~

And EK drew this beautiful postcard for Memommy~
Love the artists that are blooming here each day!

Saturday Morning Movie & Muffins~

In living the#bravewriterlifestyle, we tried Friday Movie Night but we're young ones who need sleep and the movie often ran into our bedtime. SO we compromised and began a new tradition today. Saturday Morning Movie & Muffins~

And to continue that alliteration we watched Mulan. It was the perfect time because kids just want to veg with tv on Saturday mornings anyway. Thank you @juliebravewriter for a beautiful model in schooling our children.

Writing Boys~

I moved the boys' rolling cart into their room with books, journals, and drawing caddy~
 They have gone crazy copying and drawing out of their books~
I LOVE when they come up with things on their own and don't even know they are learning!

Puzzles~

SJ and I picked up a 500 piece puzzle at the $1 store and have been hooked every since~
We finished it in a couple of days and painted a few coats of modge podge on it.
Now it is sealed together and we can't wait to start another one!!!

Nature Learning~

Because our table was decorated with beautiful leaves from our trees, we took our learning outside for the day.
We found an interesting Orb Weaver to observe and learn about~

We also discovered a watermelon seed we had spit on the ground this summer had grown a little plant in out yard
so we dug it up to see the roots and replanted in a pot~

After a little reading and nature journaling, we took off on a walk around our yard~

LOOK at those beautiful children under our gorgeous tree~

We climbed trees and picked big leaves off our magnolia~
Evie held this branch over her head like an umbrella and the boys exclaimed~
"Evie is the The Lady with the Parasol like Monet's painting!"
THAT is a win for art education if you ask me!!
Love this homeschooling life!!!
