MFW HH button 

Don’t forget to ‘link-up’ your posts ~ if you are using any of the My Father’s World curriculum. 


Kattie and I will be co-hosting the MFW Highlights link up on alternating weeks.  The linky tool will launch on Thursday evenings and be open for one week. 

Just grab a button from the side bar: created by Amber @ Refined Metals Academy. 

Thank you Kathi @ A Heart Like Water for starting this up!

You can post a picture or write up… whatever you have time for.   Please link up even if you have one picture that tells us a story.  We all have busy week’s and little time to blog, but we still love to see what you are doing in My Father’s World!

Kattie @ 2 Ladybugs and a Lizard blog –hosting this week’s linky until 9/1.


ON with our Nature Studies:

Our ECC co-op did a variety of Nature Walk activities for week 2 of ECC.


Nature Walk focus this week:

  1. Collect leaves for a future art project ~ Look What I Did With A Leaf !
  2. Seasonal Tree study – from Handbook of Nature Study blog
  3. THIS IS SOOO FUN ~ End of Summer Nature Walknotebook page 
  4. Pond Study critter list –  our kids did a creek critter list.  The link is on Barb’s blog – Outdoor Hour Challenge – August newsletter

  1. Thank you for your kind comments on my site, My Joy. This post is very inspiring and timely for me as we will be starting on Canada/freshwater this week. Thank you for the ideas. In reply, yes we started school early, July 11. The boys kept saying they were bored. I took care of that. :) About Queen, I really like their Language Lessons and some of their other materials. Was planning on them again this year but my curriculum budget kept being cut so I am trying a different route this year. Thanks again!

  2. Love the pictures! Wish it were cool enough in TX to do a nature walk. It's like walking in an oven just to get to our car. :o/

    Thanks for the invite to join the MFW Highlights link-up. I'd love to join once I figure it out. Just starting to everything takes forever....

    Do you have a post explaining what you do together in your co-op? I'd love to form one with another family nearby. They are doing ECC too. How often do you get together? What do you do together? etc...



Thank you for leaving a comment!
