Father’s Day Resources

As has become customary with our bigger topics it is time for another resource page… We lucked out with a coupon at the time but you can purchase the lapbook we are using with Live and Learn Press HERE. “It Takes Someone Special to Be a Dad” Live and Learn Folder. Our secondary printable resource was from HomeschoolNotebooking.com, though it was a gift from a friend a year or 3 back. You can find their site HERE.

The Week Endeth

June 6-7

Father’s Day has become a wonderful way to get to know more about Ken… asking the questions about his past, his interests and favourites… so much fun! Trinity and Emanuel coloured him a Best Dad Diploma.101_2372

Gavin and Emanuel enjoyed a Dinosaur story together. I absolutely LOVE the picture Emanuel drew for his dinosaur book! That binder is going to be a reference book for us for ages to come!
