School Time!

We are studying the medieval era right now—the times of knights and samurai!  I remember when I was in seventh grade making a sugar cube castle, so I thought it would be fun to let the kids try their hands at the same activity.  Sugar cubes aren’t as easy to find these days, but we ended up with more than enough.

I have some pictures to share from our schooling in our new place.


Madi’s Castle—she says she wants to make another one, too!


Max’s Castle—isn’t it great?  It has a fountain/well inside.


Castle-making with a heater placed to warm cold feet.


Snuggly-reading time.


Busy hands for happy ears.


  1. When did Madi's hair grow out so long?? Or am I confused, and only Lydia cut her hair?

  2. Aid cut her hair two Octobers ago. I actually think the post and pics are on the last post listed under 'most popular posts' on the front page of the blog on the right side.

  3. That is supposed to read, "Madi cut her hair.."

    This is your other post, Diane, that I accidentally deleted:

    "Nope, I found it--she did cut her hair cute-short. I guess it has been well over a year and it grew back with me not noticing. :( "


Thanks for taking the time to talk with me!
