"A is for Atlanta,
It is the capital of our state.
Gold dome we see from afar,
where rules and laws we legislate."
~ P is for Peach: A Georgia Alphabet
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!
Once again the boys did an excellent job on their Scrapbook Pages:
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."
Next week we will be moving on to Connecticut...
And we even have the book!
