We've had a full week as we've enjoyed our last week of summer before CC starts!
Monday we went to the meet the tutor playdate. Katie found out who her tutor and classmates are this year. She was so excited that Mrs. Frederick was her tutor again this year and that most of her classmates were the same!
The kids played yard games, ate snacks and had such a wonderful time seeing all their friends again.
Tuesday we worked on our math, reading and writing. Knox and Brex came over and we went for a walk. The weather is getting so much cooler and we are loving it.
After our walk the kids came in and wrote in their nature journals. They had collected leaves on the trail so they made some beautiful leaf rubbings.
Wednesday we spent the day shopping with Grandmother and Grandfather. The girls had fun going to different stores and looking around. We ate at Cracker Barrel, which is quickly becoming a favorite with the kids.
Thursday the boys came over and we had fun with our normal school routine.
Working on her Bible study page.
Now that we're working through Saxon 1 we have worksheets....Katie loves coloring the worksheets but, it makes for a longer math lesson than we're used to completing.
Audrey likes to sit on my lap when we're working on school. She always wants to do exactly what Katie (and the boys) are doing and she usually does pretty well at keeping up.
Saturday we went to Grandma's. The girls loved helping make guacamole and apple dumplings. Katie tried and loved guacamole for the first time!
Saturday morning we went outside for a picnic poetry tea time. We read silly poems out of our "It's Raining Pigs and Noodles" poetry book, ate scones and drank peach tea.
After tea time the girls wanted to paint. We set the outside easel up and the girls peacefully painted...but not for long.
Audrey started painting her fingers then the paint crept up her arm. Eventually both girls were covered in paint.
Katie and Audrey both had such fun painting themselves and running around the yard. Katie even made a slingshot. Then they proceeded to run around the yard hunting imaginary jungle animals with the slingshot.
