We took a day trip to Monkey Jungle today. What a place. Guess they moved about 5 years ago to their current location and it’s a great place for a field trip with kids. Especially in February. The weather was perfect! We are adventuring out on field trips in South Florida this week because they are giving great discounts to homeschoolers all week. A great benefit to us!

Today we met up with fellow 4-Hers at a state park to learn about mud flat birds. We also learned about local vegetation, some about the first Fl. settlers, local wild life and so much more. Nature is one of Indie’s favorite things to learn about. He loves going on nature walks and exploring new parks. We had a great time and it was extra special that Papa could come along. Today is presidents day of he had the day off.

Doesn't Beluga look like Wall-E?
Look at all of those shells!
A little windy and cold but it was great!
I was looking around this morning for a site with Christmas activities and found a great one. I thought I’d share. This will keep us busy and help us complete the Christmas lapbook we’ve been working on. Have a great day!
While we wait for Beluga in her ballet/tap class, Indie is doing his phonics and math lessons. We are taking it easy between Thanksgiving and Christmas so this is a nice change. It’s breezy and about 80 degrees here in South Florida. Ahhhhhh 🙂
I have recently joined a site called Good Reads. A fellow homeschooler sent me the link a while back. I’m just now getting to it. Seems like a neat site and a good way to learn about books you might be interested in.

My kindergarten has really enjoyed this book this year. We are about to move on to book 2. I recommend ETC, they read and do a little writing as well.
