The Great Sunflower Project

Our summer is usually a mix of school forms, we don't believe you should ever stop learning just because there is a weather change.

Usually its some sort of nature study, since we garden most years. Since this year we won't be gardening (I can't maintain a garden when I can barely go outside) we will be participating in the Great Sunflower Project. Shelly posted it on our Homeschool group, and I went and did some research.

We signed up and Lauren is thrilled to learn about bees. She has always been very scared of them, she has never been stung, but still its always something she has feared. We talked about how learning about somethings helps us to be less afraid.
We have about 4 or 5 pots that will be happy to have sunflowers in them this year. So now our summer will be two things, The Sunflower project and math. And she has an excuse to plant her favorite flowers, which will make for a very happy little girl.
