Homeschool Weekly Wrap Up - Week 11, Brazil

Brazil is the first country we've spent 3 weeks on.  This week we learned about Mission Aviation Fellowship, which coincided with our reading (and sobbing through) the last chapters of our Nate Saint biography.  We're going to watch End of the Spear now that we're done with the book.

Cardstock planes included in the MFW student pages.

MAF supports missionaries by air in many countries around the world.  

Hard to tell, but the kids are watching a video about MAF on my iPad.  

I was told no study of Brazil was complete without sampling some brigadeiro.  

So, of course, we had to try some!

It was yummy!

More milky inside than I expected.  I guess I was thinking more "truffle-ish."  

Eli is painting a feather with vegetable to illustrate the way ducks produce oil for their feathers to help them shed water.  

I love homeschooling.  I love having these guys around and watching them play throughout the day.

Even when they're supposed to be getting ready for lunch.  ;)

Another craft failure.

It kind of looks like a cross between a worry doll and a mummy.
It's supposed to be a carnival dancer.  

My cute boy hole punching his Brazil flag to put into the South America section of his binder.

And my kinder-twins.  I pulled out the autumn shaped foamy beads and had them sort them and make bracelets.  Kept them busy for a while.  

Hannah's at that in between stage, where she doesn't need a nap EVERY day, but she needs one often enough that she's tired without them.  One day, she decided she'd had enough and she went upstairs and went to bed all on her own!  

The dress hanging on her dresser is something I just finished, but it's been too hot for her to wear it (it's corduroy).  

When studying the Amazon rainforest (or doing math), you just have to eat Jungle Animal cookies, right?  

It's all about the food around here.
