The Little Red Lighthouse, Albert, and Birds

For the last couple of weeks we have read books with cars and airplanes, so this week
I pulled out The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge.
Once again it was a book I would never have chosen by looking at it,
but we loved it so much!
We found tutorials of how to draw lighthouses and took a tour of the real little red lighthouse~
 We also finished listening to our Audible version of Pippi Longstocking, and it was a favorite!
I had the kids draw their favorite part~
 They narrated their story and added it to their artwork~
 Scripture memorization is such a hit here now with the excitement of Awana.
The big girls love finding their verses, highlighting them, and dating when they are memorized.
They also got 'real' watercolors like Mimi and love painting in their adult coloring books~

Fun Friday was a sort of hodge podge.
I found this precious book called Albert and read it them while they painted birds~
 We added Matthew 6: 26 "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?"~
 It was such a glorious day, they stretched out in the sun~
 SJ has become quite the painter~
 We finally bought birdseed and made more bird feeders with pinecones~
 The birds were super happy~
A GREAT week @ Ankerich Academy and excited about the weekend
especially since we opened the pool this week, and they are hoping it hits 80
so they can jump in!!!
