Time to say goodbye...

 
 
Well, after lots of thinking and agonizing I have finally decided to stop posting here on Goose and Binky. 
I haven't posted regularly in at least a year.
And I really want to focus on my second blog, Crochet Crowe.
I am sad but I am looking forward to a new chapter in
our lives.  We are still homeschooling, but after this coming school year,
Goose will be going to high school and Binky will be in the 7th grade.
The kids are busier than ever and this school year will be our busiest yet!
I have loved every minute of blogging here and will continue to follow all of my favorite blogs.  I am so grateful to have met some wonderful people!!
Thank you for following along!

art and greek mythology

 
 
Painting by Goose.
Reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe.
 

 
 




 
Greek mythological creatures by Binky.
 

 
Poseidon's Trident by Binky.
 
We are studying Greece and Greek mythology right now.
Binky read the Percy Jackson and The Olympians series by
Rick Riordan.  He LOVED it!!  So, we are learning all we can about the greek gods and
goddesses.  He has created files for many of the gods and mythical creatures.
Rick Riordan has a great site for learning about this time period and series.
This week we will be listening to The Iliad and then The Odyssey on audiobook.
I love audiobooks.  I love listening with the kids and being able to do other things, like art or
crochet.  It is very relaxing! 
It is already warm and sunny at 10am.
I was hoping to take the kids to the pool, but
they aren't open during the week yet.  So annoying!
Don't they know we homeschoolers like to swim, too?!

Botanical Gardens


 
I love this moss!
It looks so soft and inviting.



 
 
 
 
 


 
 
I am fascinated by these lichen podentia!
They are the fruiting bodies erected for spore dispersal.





 
My favorite shot of the day!  I love fiddleheads!!






 
This guy was so quick!  I was lucky to get this shot.
 



 
 
 
It was such a beautiful morning.
It is always so relaxing for me to walk around with my camera and listen to
the birds singing, the bees buzzing and the creek babbling. 
I could do it all day long!
I must try and make it a weekly thing.
Relaxation is always a good idea!
