Learning our lessons the fun way!

Recently we did a project in school that put to good use our current lessons on proper nouns, penmanship, geography, and social studies. I assigned David & Abigail each the job of writing their own self-addressed envelope, which we then sent off to their cousins in New York, who very obligingly wrote/drew papers to put inside and then sent them back to us (thank you so much, Amanda and Alicia -- you made our day!). Their letters arrived today and the kids were SO excited not only to see that their envelopes indeed made it all the way back to Georgia, but also to get their own mail!Today we did a fun craft to go along with our current history lesson about the Garden of Eden...a paper serpent. It's hard to see in the picture, but it involved some cool folding for a very cool paper serpent-body!
Have I mentioned how much fun we're having with this learning-business?!

Now those are the kind of snakes I wouldn't mind having around. Very pretty. Or handsome. You pick.
