The Week in Photos

Since I’ve been swamped with putting out a couple new resources in the shop, I have lagged in getting photos of the camera and phone, and writing posts to go along with them. Yesterday I was able to carve out some time to pull together some photos that are really from the last couple weeks, not just this last one. September has been a great month of learning and living – among other things, we have learned about bees and their life cycle, made beautiful perpetual calendars, celebrated Michalemas by making dragons with the knitting tower and wool felt, read dozens and dozens of stories, worked on form drawings, and enjoyed our fall leaves to the fullest. A lot of our days involved packing up the wagon with a large blanket, lunch, warm tea, and some work, and heading to our local green space. The kids love climbing the trees, hunting for leaves and acorns, and being able to stretch out under the sky as they learn. As the weather cools, our visits there will be more active in nature so we can keep warm!

Please excuse the poor photos – our camera has been finicky and I’ve been using my iPhone.

We started hand-washing our breakfast and lunch dishes as often as possible. A lovely sensory activity, with warm soapy water, and a touch of lavender essential oil.
