~*Harvest Study*~

Each autumn we embark on an adventure to learn about the harvest traditions of other countries and cultures.  This year we're studying the Southwest Indians (Native Americans if you want to be PC) and I'll go more into detail on that in a later post. 

We're also studying from The Word and discussing the Fruit of the Spirit.  I have learned that multiple websites assign a different fruit to the gift so we chose strawberries to represent our the fruit for today.  Today was "Love" and we accomplished a few things.  A strawberry craft, copywork, and a basket containing the fruits of the spirit.
Copywork and Strawberries (the brown on the left one is "chocolate")

Also, we have a Thankful tree each year that we cover with leaves of Thankfulness.  Our tree is a little bare as we will wait until closer to Thanksgiving to fill 'er up!  
Our Thankful tree, which looks like a 7-fingered hand, and baskets of Spirit fruit.

Here are the links.

Tomorrow is Joy! 
The fruit we're giving it is cherries!  
I will post each day what we use and I'll update this one after we get dessert done (strawberry themed of course!)
