As a part of our Sonlight curriculum, we have read a couple of new books this week. The first one was this:
|"The Doughnuts" from Homer Price by Robert McCloskey|
We are also reading about Abraham and Lot in our bible stories. Abraham, for those of you who are not aware or cannot remember, is famous for sharing. Anyway, to tie the two stories together, we, as a family, made doughnuts and glazed them. Once they were done, Dan and the girls delivered them to some of our neighbors (along with some homemade tomatillo salsa that I had made earlier that day). The girls received gracious thank yous and also got to experience what it feels like to share on a grander scale than their own toys with each other.
The next book we read was Katy and the Big Snow.
