The Garden Of Eden






This week in our history lessons we've studied all about Creation, The Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, and the Fall of Man.  (As soon as I finish this post we're on to Jubal and Tubal-Cain.)  It is fascinating to see how the minds of these girls work.  Elora truly wonders why anyone would eat from a tree of poison apples. (I can see her inwardly shaking her head and thinking, "Did they learn nothing from Snow White??".) We had the opportunity to draw books of the days of Creation (Who knew that God rested in bed on the 7th day with His "little toesies" sticking out from under the blankets while his mommy turned off the "switchlight?") and create Adam and Eve out of home-made play clay (dyed with turmeric!). Elora would like to share with you Adam, Eve, a polka-dotted tree, and Satan, sticking his tongue out.  Voila.
