Learning Notes for March


Well, there went the month of March. I’ll try to catch up a bit here with some pictures and learning notes.


The weather changed from this


to this.


We did our share of school work,


celebrated Pi Day,


and during a stretch of sick days transitioned into reading chapter books silently (highlight of the month for me).


We had a fun spring break at the ranch,

Somehow William missed out on getting photographed this month, probably because he has been so busy planting flowers and vegetables in our yard.

This month he learned about the Great Depression, memorized a psalm, and read a biography of a (hopefully soon-to-be) Depression-era saint, Dorothy Day, along with a tall stack of gardening books.

The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants

Altogether we finished Macbeth, almost finished Pinocchio, and have started A Life of Our Lord for Children, which is a lovely summary of the Gospels.

Holy Week is here, so we’ll hit the books for a few more days and then keep the feast.
