Happy October! I've mentioned before how we flow with the seasons, how I front load a lot of our tougher school work in August and September, when we're fresh and tired of the heat and happy to stay inside to read and write more. But October means fall and cooler weather, so our daily rhythms shift a bit. Here's a peek at a recent, typical day.
Less than an hour of table work, which is maybe a math page or Life of Fred chapter, maybe some spelling practice, and possibly a little notebooking. The little one scribbles, colors, or cuts things.
Running laps. Sometimes she takes a stopwatch and times herself, but usually she just counts her laps. Totally self-motivated. I had nothing to do with this. Except maybe she was inspired because I recently started running with the dog?
Swinging. Swinging is fun no matter what age you are.
Mommy's writing station. Yes, I'm babysitting Raichu.
Creepy fungus bug identification.
This guy landed on Ella's leg. The Praying Mantis Relocation Program was a success. He lives in the garden now.
I don't know what was happening here. I don't disturb happy play.
