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!

This is the Flag of my Country

In recent chapters of Story of the World, we've studied some new countries, especially in Africa. When you make a new country, you need a new flag and so we decided to each design a flag for our own created country. Before we started we learned about symbolism in flag colours (like blue for freedom and red for courage) and in symbols on the flags (like a lion for strength or an eagle for courage or intelligence). Based on what we learned, we each created a flag that reflected the things that are important to us. It was a fun project with some well thought out results. Unfortunately I didn't get very many pictures though.
