MFW 1850's to Modern Week 2

It was another wonderful week in My Father's World as we wrapped up memorizing the states!  Vincent and Andrew played states rummy, adding more cards as we learned more states, to help them learn.  Well, it was really to help Andrew, Vincent's an old hand at this.  ;-)
They also filled in their maps and colored them.  At the end of the week, I gave them a blank map and had them write in the states without looking at anything (I spelled for Andrew, but he pointed and told me the names).  Vincent got all the states, and Andrew only missed 5!  In 2 weeks, my eight-year-old memorized all those states.  I am so proud of both of them!
 We read wonderful stories in a book called, "A Young Person's Guide to Knowing God" alongside our Bible reading, and continued on our hymn from last week, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus."  We also sang "This Land is Your Land."

Vincent wrapped up learning the history of science, and Andrew continued to learn about atoms and elements.
Isaac started his next lesson in K, T-t-Turtle.

We wrapped up the week with our first "real" nature walk, which we just took through our neighborhood.  :-)

Have a great weekend everyone!
