I didn't get an update doe last week so here's some fun pictures from the past two weeks!

Exploring Countries and Cultures: Brazil

In fourth grade ECC we finished up Brazil/ South America. We had a LOT of fun this week! We made carnival masks, listened to samba music and made 2 Brazilian desserts which were both a big hit with all three kids and myself.

  1. I love this!! We did K and ECC together and have the best memories. :) I miss MFW and look forward to jumping back into the cycle next year. :) My children remember quite a bit from that year, especially the continent song (it even helped ME remember the continents). :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I forgot about the continent song! lol We are absolutely in love with MFW. This is our 2nd year with it and so thankful God led us here.
