Timing of FIAR lessons

I try to have our lessons coincide with the correct season, or time of the year etc, and even though we did Cranberry Thanksgiving last year, I decided to do it again this year, with some added information.

You helped me prepare our Cranberry Relish for Thanksgiving.

We observed how the cranberries floated to the surface of the water, like in the videos we had watched of Cranberry farmers harvesting their berries in a flooded bog.

We cut up our Cranberries to see the air pockets in there, as well as the tiny seeds,

You had quite a lot of fun being mommy's little helper. :)

Sleeping like a Baby

Every night, practically since you were born, we have looked in on you several times a night.  Daddy always talks about how he wishes you didn't have to grow up so fast, and that even though you are a ripe old age of 5 1/2 now, you still look so angelic when you are asleep.

The Rocketeer

I try to talk to you about the importance of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, and you are quite the advocate sometimes.

Anyway, here you are, in a rocket jet pack made of an empty cereal box, empty paper towel roll and the little plastic sleeve that our newspaper comes in.
