Blogging through the Alphabet

 I have decided to attempt a weekly excursion into blogging through the alphabet with Ben and Me.  

Today is brought to you by the letter A.

I am trying to get better at being disciplined and prepared, but yet again I am approaching a blog entry with little-to-no preparation. So I will start the letter A with the obvious:
A is for APPLE.

In our house we love apples. I used to love Delicious apples, but I think now they have been so genetically modified that they have next-to-no taste and their pulp is the consistency of solidified mush.

So our current favorites, which we even happen to have in stock, are MacIntosh, Gala and Honey Crisp. Can you tell them apart?

 Here are activity ideas, a unit study, and a free apple lapbook link.
A is also for AVOCADO!
Can you find them in my fruit drawer?

A is for "All Creatures of our God and King!... of my favorite hymns. Here is a link to the song on YouTube (sorry for any commercials):

A is for ASLEEP...
...which my student isn't supposed to be, but he is, so I'm blogging. 

I'll cut him some slack; he does do school work at night, because he finds it easier. He's awake anyway, having trouble sleeping, and it makes his school day a little shorter the next day, although you can see sleep in the night time is just being traded for sleep in the school hours of morning.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great post! Stopping by from BTA. Blessings!

  2. We love apples, too, but our favorite is the Jonagold apple. You can't always get it, but when we find it, we stock up!
