Today we are starting a new unit! We will be covering medival times and botony, learning a medival craft (boys: whittling, Raeley: Calligraphy), disecting plants, planting an herb garden, studying on the health benefits of herbs, and doing the unit extra fast since there's really not that much history (hence the dark ages). Raeley is visting my sister this week so she can play with my new great neice, Mackenzie (sister Karen's son Michael's 7 month old baby girl)! We will miss her and as resident kitchen cleaner and babysitter, it will take some juggling on my part to adjust! She's going to have a great time, but I'm already lonely with out her to visit with.
