We have been having such a great October. October is full of fun things to do. There are festivals almost every weekend.
We went to Skate Day and Keilee sold a Minnie Mouse headband. I had to take a picture of them together. We have been going to Skate Day for 7 years! I can’t believe how fast those 7 years have gone by.
We go to the Fiddler’s Convention every year. I remember working at the Fiddler’s Convention when I was in college. This time we met some friends there and had a great day listening to all sorts of music. We are listening to “Christy” on audio book and this kind of music goes along perfectly with it.
Co-op is going GREAT!!! I am loving both my classes and the kids seem to like them too. Each Monday during Art Journaling I play a genre of music in the background [Thanks Jess ] This past week was the 50′s and they said they didn’t like it but then sang along with several songs.
My brother is laid off due to the furlough and we went to his house one afternoon. They live in the country with woods right behind them. We went on a Nature hike and saw the coolest things on the trees. Eddie said he mailed a picture to someone and they told him they were “Coral Mushrooms” but I thought they looked more like Cauliflower mushrooms. Some of them were as big as dinner plates and they are edible.
1. Keilee’s freehand drawing of Stitch. She has been drawing so much.
2. At a “Cowboy” parade drawing on the sidewalk.
3. Walking Nomad.
4. The weather has cooled off a bit so Keilee got out the footie PJ’s. We LOVE “A History of Us”. We read aloud and just follow every rabbit hole that comes up.
5. At play practice. “A Miracle on 34th Street” Keilee has a smaller role, around 48 lines, but one of her best friends is in the play too! They are having a blast at rehearsals.
Keilee has been hard at work adding items to her Etsy shop. Please check it out if you have a chance. She has sold several things and has orders for 4 more headbands.
We spent yesterday ‘changing out our closets”. Do y’all do that? We don’t have big enough closets for all our clothes so we switch out ‘Summer’ and ‘Winter’. Keilee is ready for Halloween and has already gotten her costume. It is SO cute!!
I love our days this year. The way they flow. I am doing Algebra I with Keilee and while it isn’t always fun and games we are getting through it. At times I even really like it. She doesn’t though. She is still reading so much and her Smash Journal is simply beautiful. She is doing Ecology and making her own “Animal Behaviors” notebook using her “Animals’ book and Notebooking Publisher. She spends huge amounts of time editing photos on her Instagram account. So many people around her age do edits but I really think her’s are so cool. They are unlike any I ever see. We are both participating in Ann Voskamp’s 1000 Gifts for October challenge. It is something I look forward to each morning.
So the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are getting cooler. Our trees are just now beginning to change color. We still have tomatoes!! Just a couple but it seems late for them. I love Fall!
Happy weekend all,
