Garden of the Good Shepherd week 3

This was another fun week, though we didn't seem to do too much...

Our calendar to through the end of the week...

This week's theme was The Heavens Tell God's Glory!

Day 15 ~ The Sun
Psalm 19:1-6

We made Sunshine Shakes! (I forgot to take pictures, we were in a hurry to get to the library)

6-ounces frozen concentrated OJ
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup water
6 ice cubes

Blend together in a blender.  Makes 4 servings.  

I found this to be just so-so, next time I'll use all milk and no water.  Or maybe yogurt...  hmmm....

We also read a few books:
Sunshine Makes the Seasons by Franklyn Branley
The Sun by Seymour Simon

Day 16 ~ The Cloud
1 Kings 8:2-11

We looked around NASA's website for information on cloud formation.  The Professor was *thrilled* to do this.  They even found a video!

We read The Cloud Book by Tomie dePaola. 

Day 17 ~ The Rain
Matthew 5:43-48

We read a few books:

Where Does the Butterfly Go When it Rains?
Rabbits and Raindrops
Down Comes the Rain

Day 18 ~ The Lightning
Job 28:20-26

We read:
Flash, Crash, Rumble and Roll
Thundercake by Patricia Polacco

Day 19 ~ The Hail
Job 38:28-30

We ended up not doing anything this day, too much else got in the way :(

Day 20 ~ The Wind
Ezekiel 37:7-10

We read Feel the Wind.  And decorated our dragon cake!

Day 21 ~ The Rainbow
Genesis 9:12-15

We read Planting a rainbow by Lois Ehlert.

We were going to paint rainbows and make a rainbow fruit salad, but again time escaped me...  Oh year.

Overall it was a fun week and we're looking forward to next week :)  Stop by Catholic Cuisine to see other garden parties :)
