I just loved Dawn's ideas yesterday for Ascension Thursday so I borrowed some. (The math and grammar never got done yesterday- shh!)
We went out with our new nature notebooks and talked about what it would be like to be one of the apostles watching Jesus ascend into the clouds. We sketched the clouds and wrote what they looked like. Then we headed inside to whip up some meringues which turned out to look just like Washington clouds- a little dark, ready to rain. They didn't warrant any pictures. Yes, they looked that bad but they were yummy indeed.
My big kids and I needed to watch our Lion, Witch and Wardrobe movie before it was due today. It's tricky with those kind of movies- we can only watch them during naptime so we were down to the wire. Afterward it seems that all things Narnia came into play and for hours we slayed the birds.
