Hike On The Farm

One day while we were out at the farm, the boys decided they wanted to go for a hike.  There is quite a bit of property out there, so going on a hike proved to be quite fun.  I captured some of our hike moments and posted them below…
Just starting out.

The boys and their Daddy.

Silly boys!

  2. I’m just realizing I never answered your question about artist and composer study. Here’s a response I gave to someone else not too long ago. I hope it helps you!

    It’s really very easy. I have one day a week dedicated to nature study, artist study and composer study (along with math and language.) I focus on one artist and composer a month.

    For the artist, each week we might read a book about the artist, study at least one piece of his/her art in detail and try our hand at replicating their art or doing something of a similar style.

    For the composer, each week we might read a book about him/her and listen to their music online or on CD. We often listen as we work on our art. It’s nothing fancy! Hope this helps!

  3. Thanks Cindy :-)
