Photography Challenge Day 4

Its day 4 and our challenge today is “Green.”  If you’ve missed my past posts, we are working through a 30 day photography challenge.  I hope you enjoy our artwork today.







In other news, Zion has introduced Israel to Starfall.  If you have preschool/early elementary aged kids you should really check it out.  It’s a free program aimed at helping kids learn to read.  They love listening to the little stories and playing along.  I love that they can play without realizing they are learning something very useful.  I imagine that the website is where Israel learned to read numerals.  I know he knows the numbers 1 – 6 already.

I ordered the kids a new read aloud book, Redwall by Brian Jacques.  Not that we needed more books to read, but I thought maybe they’d like it given their affection for the video game Legend of Zelda.  A small hero, a big bad guy, adventure.  Sounds right up their alley.  I hope they like it, especially since there are 20+ books in the series.
