Trees in Our Backyard

Last week we wrapped up our short study on trees. We identified all the trees in our backyard, and then did a leaf rubbing for each tree for our Considering God's Creation Notebooks.

Here are some of the books we used. Our local library had a great selection to choose from in their juvenile non-fiction section.

All three children are working hard on their leaf rubbings.

L, my 5-year-old made little leaf people with her leaf rubbings. I thought they were cute!

I am James McDermott. My wife Cindy and I have been blessed by God with 13 children. We also homeschool and believe in purity in the courtship process. Above all, we are Christians. We recently started a website called Christian family meeting place ( Many who hold our views are isolated and are looking for online fellowship, personal fellowship, churches, and even spouses. I am inviting you to register. It is free. If you're not interested, that is perfectly fine. May God bless you in all you do for Him. - In the Vine, Jim for Cindy and the rest
