Studying the Middle East and North Africa.

We're still studying the Middle East and North Africa. The unit study we're doing from Christian Cottage is a good one and it offers several activities to do. However I just wasn't in the mood to do those activities. Mainly, the book had us cooking some middle eastern dishes and then sampling them. I could read the recipe and just tell that my picky kids wouldn't eat it. Normally, I'd search for alternative recipes and make those, but I just wasn't in the mood to cook. So, we just did our own thing, something that seems to happen more frequently the longer I homeschool. We did a notebook section on the Bedouin who live in that area. We'll be starting a study of Greece today and we might have to go to a Greek restaurant. That would be fun and I wouldn't have to cook.

Don't you just love that about HSing....if something doesn't suit your fancy, you can just simply choose to do something else. BTW...great notebook pages & the 'model' is terrific! ;-)

The model just did that on her own. I didn't ask her to dress up, but she thought it was interesting so she did it.
