Well it has been a fun and busy week!
We had our first homeschool co-op meeting of the school year and we spent some time walking and looking for animal tracks
Thanks to the recent rains, we found many tracks in the mud.
We went back to our church and the kids worked on Nature Journal entries.
We also learned about local wildlife.
At home, we witnessed our last Monarch emerging from its chrysalis.
After a rainy and dreary Wednesday, we were awestruck by an unusually brilliant sunset.
Thursday wasn’t rainy, but a walk through the woods provided evidence that we’d had plenty of rain. There were thousands of mushrooms of every shape and size poking up through the decaying leaves.
On Friday, we had out annual Not-Back-To-School picnic. We are blessed to have a wonderful homeschooling community in our small town and we all had a wonderful time.
The children enjoyed running around and blowing that “unsocialized” myth right out of the water.
Our week, in a nutshell, was great. I have been feeling better by the day and everyone has enjoyed getting into the Autumn routine.
How was your week?
