State-by-State Scrapbook :: Georgia
I am *really* loving the Discover America State by State Series
and so are my children. That said, they are
expensive so I have been slowly purchasing them used from Amazon since I wasn’t able to convince my library
to purchase the set. Apparently I am purchasing then too
slowly. I realized Monday that I had not yet found an inexpensive copy of P is for Peach… sigh
… So, I decided to read what we could online through Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature. By continually asking it to “surprise me” we were able to read the pages for the letters: A, B, J, K, L, M and N. Much better than nothing!
We then downloaded the study guide
and worked on some of the worksheets as well as look up more information about Georgia online. (Study guides for the entire series can be found here
Since “the girls have been getting to do all the fun stuff in the kitchen,”
I decided to let the boys make one of the recipes suggested in the study guide
, Pecan Clusters. They were super easy and turned out very yummy, though I think they would have been even better
made with Milk or White Chocolate Chips.
“What has shells and is sold by the pound?
One grows in a tree and the other underground.
What makes peanut butter, the other pecan pie?
N is for Georgia Nuts, the good tastes that make us sigh.”
And we even have the book!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
