Leonardo Davinci Lesson

We are using Illuminations from Bright Ideas Press this year to help tie subjects in with our core which is The Mystery of History. I just wanted to share with you one of the things the kids did as a project while we were studying Leonardo Davinci this week. This was part of the literature […]

Fruit of the Spirit

In our lesson from The Mystery of History today, we talked about Girolamo Savonarola.  One of the activities for younger children mentioned the Fruit of the Spirit. I don’t have any children in that category but the activity was interesting so I read it to my kids. They couldn’t remember all of the fruits so […]
