PUMPKINS/FALL THEME

     
   This was the week Caleb was born. We did this as a theme instead of a letter theme or our Bible Curr. b/c it was such a hectic time. He is now 2 months old and I am just now putting this blog together. Jordyn LOVES doing seasonal themes, I'm guessing b/c it is something different than the usual 'school.' We focused on PUMPKINS first, then LEAVES, APPLES, and SCARECROWS. I wish I had more pictures of all the fun things we did. We sang fall songs, collected fall items outside, read the cutest scarecrow book,"The Little Scrarecrow Boy." I am excited to begin our NATIVITY theme starting Dec. 1st and lasting all month. After that we will do a winter theme in Jan.
   How much fun it was here are a few of our moments.

Homeschool Weeks 9 and 10

After editing the pictures for weeks 9 and 10, I am excited to blog about these weeks. If you are looking at the blog on an apple device ( IPHONE or IPAD) try to view it on a windows PC. The reason being, the videos I post, for some odd reason, do not show up on these devices. The videos at the end of this blog are worth watching.

And of course, Alvin told her to give it a kiss!
