I absolutely love homeschooling on beautiful fall days. We like to soak in as much sun, warmth, and color as we can before the days become dark and cold. The goal is to have productive mornings then head out for some sunshine and exercise in the afternoon.
Tuesday our afternoon went delightfully wrong. I wanted to go to an apple orchard on the opposite side of town from where we usually go. Tuesdays are also farm pickup day for our CSA and I didn’t want to drive one direction only to turn around and drive the other. Unfortunately when we got to the new orchard, we found out the orchard only allows “pick your own” on weekends. Implementing plan B, we headed toward the CSA farm to a trail we know well, but on the way we found a “new” park.
We had great time exploring ledges at the “new” park. The boys were great about posing for pictures, but the lighting conditions were a bit challenging. After an hour or so of climbing around we were heading back to the car when we found FOSSILS! They were small (about 1 cm), but they were still a really cool find.
We spent several hours this week on FIRST LEGO League. We took part of C’s team to a workshop on Saturday that was really productive. We also had a team meeting this week. I think the team is really starting to understand how the robot works and what we will be doing.
We also had a great time playing around on some of the fun stuff they have at the orchard. (Yes, that is me in front of the camera!) After a nice lunch together, we headed home for a little school work before soccer practice.
All in all it was a great week! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful fall as well!
