Firsts

There have been a number of firsts this week.

Let's start with the obvious ;)  This is my first blog post!

  • We tried lapbooking.  As it is Easter next week, I decided it would be a great to start with an Easter theme. I found this great idea here and used that template for the book itself.  I used the symbols found on this page (scaled down to fit) and typed the scriptures up myself.  I used this site to create the tracer pages.  Elijah did the colouring.

Here is how it looks:

 Cover

The eggs

Under eggs - picture and scripture

 Trace work on back of cover - scripture references

We have been going through the story daily.  I could leave it there, but have decided to make it part of a larger lapbook.  We will be working on that for the rest of this week.  I'll post about it when we are finished.

  • I braided Bethany's hair (neatly) for the first time!
  • We have started our first read-aloud chapter book:

Borrowed from the library obviously ;)

  • We also got our first animals - 2 chooks (currently nameless).  They are happily familiarising themselves with the chook-run in the backyard.  
Enjoy their roost

  • We got our first egg this afternoon!  I'm looking forward to receiving regular fresh (and hopefully bigger) eggs.


It is so small it doesn't fit in the egg tray.

Well, I think that's about it for firsts this week.

Have a blessed Palm Sunday!

Only by His grace,
