Around The World In Eighty Bites

This week entailed learning and reviewing the seven continents and five oceans. Our days included a compass rose, scales, keys and atlases.  Lauryl also learned to say "hello" in nine different languages, as we sailed around our desktop globe. I wrapped the week up spending a total of $2.29 on cake supplies, and a free world map from Google.  Lauryl loved creating this cake mostly from memory of her newly discovered continents.

Finds of the Week: - Montgomery County Heritage Museum in Conroe, Texas.  Interesting local facts that will surprise you.  Like - where the names Grogans Mill and Cochrans Crossing came from. 

Scripture of the Week: 
"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - NIV

"The means to gain happiness is to throw out from oneself like a spider in all directions an adhesive web of love, and to catch in it all that comes."
Leo Nikolaevich
