Jesus' Precious Little Lambs

A Charlotte Mason Christian Home School: Preschool – 5th Grade :)

4/10/12 Chicks!

The kids have a couple of new playmates around the house. Avery and Amelia, our new 1 week old baby chicks, have added to the delightful brood underfoot in my kitchen. Raising chickens is my (very) small time farm dream come true–our home feeling more like a homestead, our children turning into naturalists. The best practical part about raising chickens for eggs is that they are as easy to tend to as a stray cat.

Naturally, we were excited to share our new chickies with Little Lambs! It was cute to see the children learning how to hold chicks for the very first time. Chicks and puddle jumping formed our homeschool curriculum of the day. Puddle jumping, curriculum? Yes, having fun is the foundation of a good curriculum for young children. And the more freedom a schooling situation can allow, the more opportunity for fun!!
