I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted anything! Well, October was a busy full month with Samuel's birthday at the beginning and Halloween at the end and tons of fun in between! It just flew by too fast for us. The first week of November is already almost over, so I'll just put up a few highlights and share briefly some favorite moments of our last month. :)
The weather has been changing and getting colder and we even had a few rainy days. The kids love watching the rain out our HUGE window wall in the living room. So on one of our rainy days Faith wanted to make a picture of the rain. She glued some big raindrops on her page, then drew some with marker and finally, moved on to watercolor and finger painted more 'raindrops' on her page. It turned out really pretty and she was quite proud of this one and it hung up on the kitchen cabinets (our art gallery!) for the whole month.
We haven't been able to go outside as often or for as long as we have been because it's gotten so windy and cool. So we've started getting out some of our old games to play again indoors and the kids have LOVED it! It's nice that we can put things away for a few months and bring them out again and their interest and excitement is fresh again.
Since Joshua was SO into speed racer, I had to take advantage of this and sneak in any learning I could that involved all things 'Speed Racer'. Thanks to a quick Google Search I was able to find some Speed Racer graphics to print off and we used them for making patters, counting and math problems, sorting and graphing.
