Friday Findings: Old Science Books, FREE Greenleaf Guide, Multiplication Circle Patterns....

Ball, books, babysitting, and buying the next size clothing for our kiddos is what this week brought.  I can't believe it's already Friday!  And would you believe it could hit 90 degrees today here in WI!!  Speaking of books, I just have to share a bit of info on our local homeschool curricula sale happening tomorrow....

40+ vendors with new and used books, curriculum, toys, games, crafts, and misc. educational resources  

There’s something for everyone!!

I totally realize many of you are around the world from me and it's not possible to attend, but for those of you in and around the area, it's always a good time.  And, for those of you anywhere in the lower 48 states, I will be posting updated book sale lists very soon, so stay tuned.

Around the web this week, I was intrigued by How Old is Too Old for a Science Book because this is something I often wonder.  You can't change history, but science is constantly evolving.  There are new science discoveries and theories every day.  Some are obviously better, but some...well, who's to say.  I love what Nicole has to say about using living science books.  I was encouraged to hear a mix of both is best.

I cannot believe the Greenleaf Guide to Old Testament History is FREE on Lulu!!  This resource looks amazing and I've been contemplating using it with the kiddos in the fall.  I've owned the print copy for years, but was elated to see it accessible online as well.

We need fact practice!  There's just no way around it.  This week I stumbled on this Multiplication Circle Patterns post that looks super fun.   I printed the lesson plan and intend to try it.

At home, The Farmer recently dumped a sand pile for the boys.  Here they are in last week's cold, rainy weather building a 'retention pond'....
