This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Homeschool Moon Unit

This week we are studying the Moon! (Last week was the Sun) To explain the Sun reflecting light off the Moon to Earth we did a little experiment with a colored and cut out paper Moon, a mirror, and a flashlight. (From MFW curriculum)

Flashlight = Sun, Mirror = Moon, Earth = Earth (ha ha)

We found that the Moon doesn't shine on it's own. It needs the Sun's light to reflect to the Earth
(As we are also God's reflection to the world)

Did I say how much I love homeschool? :)


  1. Moon Unit, eh? That's Frank Zappa's daughter's name!
    ps- you may like home school now, but wait until its time for algebra!

  2. Co-op! My kids will never know I can't do math! ha ha
