Stone Soup

Last Tuesday(John has Tuesdays off)I told the children the story of Stone Soup. They were enthralled and we had a great discussion after about the moral of the story. Then we talked about each of us having unique strengths and talents and how working together as a family benefits all. We discussed each person and their strengths and it was an amazing afternoon. Then we made Stone Soup! I filled a dutch oven with some water and put a stone in it. Jack and John built a fire outside and then we all put something in the pot. It cooked outside and we watched it bubble and smelled the yumminess coming from the pot.

We had Stone Soup and homemade bread for dinner. It was a hit! I LOVE homeschooling and the opportunities it affords our family!
