There was lots of shrimping going on down here. We saw about 10 boats in the area.
On the way home we drove to hubby's work to pick up his truck and look at this Texas dog. hehehe Not really, this was an armadillo. There were two roaming around. It was dark and had to use the flash but we got a picture of this guy. That was our cool nature part of the trip.
Now on to the best part. Well, besides going to eat at Olive Garden, YUM!! we had to stop at Barnes & Noble. What would a homeschooling mom be if we didn't stop there? So what did I find? We got a few books for history. Then I saw this book which I really liked. It has all the rules of grammar and punctuation and some tests and answers to those tests. I need that book for myself. I am so bad with my punctuation. My oldest is much better than I am. That was our day out of town.
Update: I always forget to add the titles of the books and was going to put them in but forgot again. So here it goes....The books I got are from a series called History Maker Bios. They have different authors but they all say Barnes & Noble on them. I did look on amazon but they only showed one copy and it was a hard cover and way to expensive so I didn't add that next to The Blue Book link. These are small softcover books and they have lots of different titles. If you go to Barnes & Noble and look on their kids history section I am sure you will see them there. Ferdinand Magellan's author is Elaine Landau, Sir Walter Raleigh by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson, Lewis and Clark by Candice Ransom, Christopher Columbus by Susan Bivin Aller. They are all $5.95US and $7.95Canada. Don't forget to get your teachers discount. I like these books because they are short, have lots of pictures, have a timeline, have some further reading options and websites to go for more info.
