"Mom, when will I ever use cursive?" ~ as he is practicing his cursive skills. I reminded him he will use it when he writes a letter or signs his name. His response? "Oh, you mean like when I give my autograph?"

Tidied up the bookcase and added a new author to the shelf today. Griffin is writing an illustrated book (in the Wimpy Kid genre) with an original character named Jim. He created Jim several years ago and he is present in many short stories and iPad filmed videos. 'Rise of the Elites' will be his first action packed, full length book. This young man of ours has quite the imagination!

Today we went to Strange's Nursey & Greenhouse. It's always a fun visit! Griffin will study carnivorous plants beginning next week. Today at the greenhouse he chose a venus fly trap and a pitcher plant. This is going to be an interesting project!

I love how we are studying the history of newspapers and we are discussing Benjamin Franklin. It is a privilege to have the ability to travel and have hands on learning experiences as we did a few weeks ago in Philadelphia. This is the passage way in which Benjamin Franklin walked from his home to work each day.

Mike and Griffin went to a bible conference with a group of men from our church. They traveled to North Carolina for the weekend and had a wonderful time! They are home now and my heart is overflowing as Griffin shared some of the sermons he heard this weekend. The Lord was present in a mighty way!
