school with elle:day16.

[disclosure: okay, so i'm having trouble keeping up with this here blog. (i antedate the entries to match the school day i'm transcribing, so you can't necessarily tell how far behind i am posting. but trust me, i am WAY behind.)

in an effort to keep this place afloat, i'll stick to highlights of our schooling, and i might skip some of our days altogether when life is a particularly special brand of crazy.]

following our garden field trip, elle and i did the normal calendar/chalkboard routine and then made a book of her favorite parts of the trip.


she drew ink sketches (below is the turtle crafted from rocks) and filled in the outlines with watercolors.



when the pages dried, i bound them together with a single line of stitching on my sewing machine to finish the book. the best thing about these books is that elle can then revisit each trip and activity whenever she wishes.
