The Carrot Seed~ {BFIAR}

This week we are rowing The Carrot Seed.
We read the story and connected with our planting day on Friday
 then read our Bible story of The Parable of the Sower in Luke 8.
We thought of things we had to be diligent at to succeed and wrote a story in our journals~
 In the midst of school, the UPS man delivered EK's MOST wanted birthday gift so all school halted as we swooned over this wonderful gift~
 Do you think she was just a little happy?
We are SO excited to see a bird move in and maybe raise some babies!!!

Dad was able to hang it when he got home from work~
Right outside our school room window along with another birdhouse, a feeder, and our hummingbird feeder!

After just one reading of The Carrot Seed SJ picked up the book and read it to me!~
{THIS is why I don't skip BFIAR (Before Five in a Row) books...
They are SO valuable for new readers in gaining self confidence in their reading journey not to mention...
 they are just plain AWESOME books!} 

AND just look at the youngest student to join our school for the day~
Ummm... can you stand the cuteness???
