Taking our school outside ~

The weather has been so nice lately that it is hard to stay inside and focus on school work.  So when we can, we take our school outside!

In science, the older kids are learning about animals.  Last week, we were talking about worms so we headed out doors to search for worms.

We searched in the usual places where the worms tend to congregate.  We were even successful in finding a few annelid friends.

We even found a few more discoveries…some of the creepy crawly nature and some not…

March 1, 2011 147 As we were digging for worms, we found this old car buried in the ground.  It looks very old and since our house is old, we wonder if it is from some children who grew up here in the 50s or 60s. 

While we’re outside studying nature, we also fit in a little P.E. and recess…

We love taking our school outside!


Computer problems…

I wanted to add a little note to let you all know that I’m having some computer problems.  For some reason, I can not view some of your blogs.  I get a “This page can not be opened” message.  We thought we had the problem fixed and then it happened again this morning.  So if I’ve been absent from your blog, that is why.  I am really missing reading some of my favorite blogs!  I’m hoping to be able to chat with some of you again soon!


  1. What a great day! I love all your pictures, especially your l'il lady under the quilt! I eagerly await the days of clothesline castles out there! And that car -- what a story it must have!
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. Look at those shorts! I'm so jealous!!! I can't wait for flip flop days. They found some cool things while exploring outside!

  3. Yes, wouldn't you love to know the story of the children who played there?

  4. I wish you all could see the other side of the car. Do you see the man in the window on the driver's side? The passenger side has a woman! My kids thought that was so neat!


I love comments! Thanks for taking time to leave me a message. I'll be sure to get back in touch with you!
