This week we studied Canada Geese. In the Handbook of Nature study (pg 130-135), there are some great stories about geese. I had no idea they were smarter than dogs!

So, while I was helping Gracie Girl with her Venn diagram comparing Canada Geese and Ducks, Emmalyn produced her masterpiece. She has lost most of her skill in handwriting and spelling, but we have 9 more years to work on that:) This week she had the two BEST days she has had in about 10 months, and she has eaten at every single meal!
I think doing the Nature Journal took the "school" pressure off and made it easier for Joy-Bug to feel she could write. Also, she loves nature and it is always easier to write about something you love. So, in case you were on the fence about nature study, here is one more reason to begin!
