Everything cows!



We're still finishing up our zoology book from last year. Now that we're practically living on a farm, it makes it a much easier task.

From our studies of Ancient India to the lowing out in the fields, everything is suddenly turning up cows!


Our weekend trip to the Swiss mountainous countryside coincided with the Swiss cows coming down from the mountains for the winter. Apparently the goats came with them.




These cows are currently pasturing behind our house, and the girls have been making daily visits to a newborn calf in the stable next to us.




Since we don't eat cow, we celebrated our appreciation for them with some artwork (mine and Sunburst's):





My attempts at pastel cows:



and Sunburst's, including a poem she memorized awhile back:

  1. The thing I like most about your homeschooling curriculum is how much art you incorporate into everything!
