Owl Moon

Product Details

This week we are working on the FIAR book Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Candace at His Mercy is New had recently rowed this book so it was wonderful timing to get some great ideas from her.

Yesterday involved us reading Owl Moon and then spending some time learning about owls. Before we started we talked and I just wanted to get an idea of what exactly she knew about owls. We then read this book...

Product Details

This was a perfect book for Reagan! It didn't involve her having to sit still and listen for a long period of time to learn about owls. It has short, informative text and great pictures. We then went to the computer and found a great link on Homeschool Share where we could listen to a few different owl calls. We loved being able to take the book and compare the owl call that the father did with the actual sound of the owl.

Tomorrow will involve an owl craft, the discussion of simile and metaphor and the reading of an additional owl book.

Reading through the Bible in 90 days!


I started this yesterday for the first time. I have read about other bloggers reading through the Bible in 90 days, but never felt like I would stay on task and do it.

I am excited to say that I am READY!! I am on day two and so far it has not been as difficult as I thought it might be. It ends up being approximately an hour of reading per day. It is even better because I got an awesome mentor, which is Candace at His Mercy is New. I love her blog and am a frequent visitor there and I consider her an awesome woman of God. I am blessed to have her praying for me and encouraging me as I go.

I will post an update from time to time and let you know how it is going and if I am still on track.
