We had a wonderful 4th of July celebration and weekend too! Today we painted some, and I can get lost drawing. I drew some of our figs and a piece of okra, we have another plentiful batch, so our friends will be happy recipients of many figs these days, and Blue Heart drew a Moth Moon Butterfly copying from this book we got for 40 cents at a library sale.

For math we worked on number families, and that’s truly easy to do without paper, we used counters and our fingers too, and my oldest read two lessons from the First McGuffey Reader book.
My husband read parts of the Declaration of Independence to the girls, as well as George Washington Picture Book.
I’m about to finish Friel book of short stories. This is such a great book, a collection of short stories that compose to me a landscape of an Irish heritage, narrated by a man who observed nature and man with passion. I love Friel’s bitter sweet humor and his straightforward yet very picturesque use of language.
