My friend Heather sent me this fabulous project zippered bag for our personal 4th of July Patriotic Exchange. Isn't it simply fabulous?!
Personal 4th of July Patriotic Exchange from Heather
Here are some goodies that Heather sent along too....a darling wooden plaque to hang from a peg in my Americana room and look at those sweet Moda charm packs to try my hand at quilting (Heather knows I have a yearning to do that!) and some other patriotic fabrics too! WOW! I love it all :)
I keep thinking....
that I'm going to have more free time since we are on summer break. Well, to date, that's not happening! LOL! Nope. Instead I've integrated my yearly "Mama's Summer School" into our mornings. We are doing reading groups with quizzes, math, writing prompts and our fun "focus" of the summer is The U.S. Constitution as written by our founding fathers. So far we have learned about the Legislative Branch and its intended functions, along with what a Quorum means and what an Amendment is and why the Constitution needed them from time to time. We are learning much about our country's government and the honest to goodness inspiring qualities that each one of our founding father's possessed to author such a document and give birth to our nation.
that's been our summer so far. How's yours going?
Until next time...
I'll be keeping my "hands to work and heart to God"!
With love and hugs,
