It's Summer! That means it's time for . . .


We finally have 7-11 in our city. So excited. We get Slurpees a couple of times a week. The family favorite is Banana--but I am thinking that Grape is going to be pretty awesome. Can't wait to try it. 

When I saw this post on making your own slurpees, I was pretty excited. The recipe looks pretty straight forward. They not only look good, but also save you $$$$.

Greatest Artist Unit Study

I found this free unit study from Pinterest. I am planning on doing it with my girls as soon as I get the books from the library.

From Confessions of a Homeschooler blog:

In this series of artist studies, we will be learning about 8 of the world’s greatest artists. We will immerse ourselves in the work of each artist so we become well familiar with their style, methods, and images.
Each study includes:
  • Lesson plans for each week
  • Lap Book printables
  • Artist Notebooking page
  • Art Puzzles
  • Artist Flashcards 
The only books that you need are the Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists by Mike Venezia. I found mine at our local library. If you want you can get them for around $7 each through Amazon.
