Peeling carrots

Yesterday we finaly did week 2 in our Home Economics for home schoolers.
(from Pearables) We are making a scapbook with pictures copied from the
book and our own picutres that I will take while doing the
lesson.  Should be fun and make for an interesting book afterwards.

So here are the pictures from yesterday.  The lesson was on
peeling carrots, they found it fun and Nathaniel was thrilled I let him
peel a carrot too.  We cut up the carrots afterwards and at snack
time guess what they snacked on….  Carrots!!  A healthy
snack and they enjoyed them because they peeled them.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Nathaniel was the first little student…  He did very well.

Rebecca was the next student, she already has helped me a bit in the kitchen, so it was not all that new to her. 

And then Sarah, she has been a kitchen helper too.  The girls
still enjoyed it even though they are already familiar with peeling
veggies or fruits.  They are both me big helpers during canning
season. 

All three holding up the scrapbook we are making along with the lessons.

  1. Those pictures are great, I am working on the same lesson with my 7 yr old daughter Kassidy. What a neat idea to make a scrapbook using the lesson book,do you mind if we use it too? ;0) We have very exciting news at the Wilson home, we are expecting a new addition to our family in July 07! I havent been posting due to very bad nausea but Ive still been reading. Have a great day!

  4. I had Bri help slice up celery the other day for our soup, I thought there were hairs in our soup and wondered where it all came from until I figured out it was strings of celery ;). She also helped Lee peel potatoes the other day (with a knife, our veggie peeler is always broken…). While we were reading the Christmas chapter in Laura Ingalls "Farmer Boy" this morning I had to laugh to myself when their mother said "Remember Alice, we're peeling the potatoes not slicing them!" :). Bri's done very well considering her mother is just now allowing her to touch knives :), I really think I'm more paranoid about such things then I ought to be! She's actually very careful.

  5. Good to hear from you too, Shelby.

    Amanda, I did the tag, I know some may have more them one word, but it was hard to think of a one worded answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love hearing from you!!
