School with Daddy July 2, 2012

When we first decided to homeschool Dean said that he would teach something to the boys on Saturdays.  We have been discussing our vision for why we are homeschooling and what we want homeschooling to look like in our home. A couple of weeks ago Dean decided he would like to do science and art activities with the boys.  And so it began….

After mixing colored water they mixed paint and painted pictures. I missed that part because little Nathaniel was hungry 🙂

ImageWhen bath time was done Calvin poured in the blue colored water, followed by the yellow colored water  to make green water.  He loves green, so this was all very exciting to him.
