I moved the coat hooks to the other wall, and covered the paneling to brigthen up the entry way... not to bad!! =-) Turquoise is my new favorite color lately....
And here is a little spot to put our nature finds!
and of course into the dining room some more turquoise!
In order to help our mornings run more smoothly we set out our bowls and breakfast cups and spoons for cereal in the morning on the table. This helps with the banging of cabinets and the kinders fighting over what bowl they are going to use etc... all before mommy makes her way downstairs. It works awesome! .
see my cute turquoise birdies? =)
and a little "love" in the school room.....
Okay, so enough of the decor, wanna see what the kids have been up to? =)
Here is KT playing checkers with daddy online... she cracks me up the way she is sitting!
going for bike rides....
JT playing "paper route boy"
KT and I made some "pretties" from some plain headbands a few days ago.. we hot glued beads, and ribbon etc... she llllooves them~
Here, mommy being a bit crafty with the sewing machine... I added some fun to her hoodie sweatshirt, and matching headband to go with! sewed on some flowers and accents on the hood. (not so great pic of it)
Made the kids some crayon rolls for their art time. They love them. And it's great to just grab and go with their Fun books when we have to head out.
We visited our favorite Fall Festival.....
And of course they had to do the Corn Maze... Daddy always goes in... but we made do this time!
Our seed to Sunflower has finally opened up!!! This was BIG news! we started it as a little seed in the house several months ago.. and here is JT's.
He is so Proud!
A Catapillar in the fall? what? After some internet research we discovered he is a giant moth from England. =)
Great timing for his poem of the Catapillar by Christina Rosettie in his First language lessons memorization. =)
KT loving her Geosafari... and she is practicing her 3 letter words!
some fall books on our shelf for reading time...
I just got this book a few months ago. I am looking forward to reading these to the kinders. Have you read it? any thoughts?
speaking of nautre books, I just got this in the mail the other day. I have heard nothing but great things, excited about using it with JT's reading time.
We also went on a Field trip with the homeschool group to Sunshine Pumpkin farm. It was a wonderful outing!
We learned all about the life cycle of the pumpkin, and looked for the differant stages out in the field... here are the flowers....
It was located on a small German farm, so we visited many farm animals.. and the chickens were the hit of the day. KT loves catching them! JT not so much.. and mommy? NO THANKS! Here is KT with her sweet friend.....
we recently joined the homeschool Co-op for Game day. The kids get to play all kinds of games that they normaly need more than two or three players.. and they are having so much fun! It's a great break for them, and i love that they can run and play outside...It's hard to have one more thing outside the house during the week, but this is good for them. Currently we are doing Tuesdays Co-op in the AM Wed nights Martial Arts, and Thursday AM mommy bible study at church.... so that's 3 days a week out and about... not including church on sunday and family week dinner. So we are staying busy this season! =)
KT and I have been working on her numbers, I found these great little crafy wooden leaves... a little workbox fun!
