Francis Scott Key

McKenzey read a book about Francis Scott Key to Isabelle and I today. I had the girls do video after to tell us the facts that they learned about the Star Spangled Banner. We also panted bird houses that we got. This was an awesome project because they were entertained for a good hour and half.

Pirate Putt Putt math

We learned all about angles, points, lines,  by playing pirate putt putt. We went through one time completely and then McKenzey had to go potty so we went the second time through twice, we skipped ahead a lot of people.  The girls both got holes in one so the nice owner gave us 2 free games.

We picked the bamboo gardens and since we were there checking the place out I decided it would be a great time to learn something. The gardens have over 140 varieties of shade and sun-loving bamboo. We also looked the butterfly garden, camellias, and irises, unfortunately none of the flowers were Continue reading
