Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

March and April Highlights 2011

Let's start with some photos. They usually give a good idea of what's going on. Like they say,  "a picture is worth a thousand words".
Here's some pictures of what we were up to in the March and April:

Caleb did an Art Class where he created this plasticine 3-D artwork of a dragon. See the castle on the hilltop in the background?
