Week 1: Cows

The C. family is currently using some ideas from Brightly Beaming Resources to help add a bit more structure to get through the approaching cold winter days. For 26 weeks they will recognize a theme, shape/color, number, and letter with a corresponding field trip.

Coming to a plate near you!

Cows do in fact say, "moo."




  1. Hey! Loving the blog! Glad you found some cows. Lovely photos. Your boys and you will surely treasure this record of your lives and growth.

  2. Hi Jennifer, I am a friend of your moms and have home schooled some of my kids, some of the time. A few resources I loved when my kids were little were: Teaching your Children Joy, by Linda and Richard Eyre and the Five in a Row series - there is one for younger kids. What a fun time in your young ones lives!
