Today I am joining in Field Trip Friday a day late, it is hosted by Chestnut Grove Academy. This isn’t a new field trip for us and we go to the fishery a few times a year in both spring and fall. My favorite time to go is in the fall when the leaves are changing and it’s much cooler.
Today was a dreary day and the kids have been sick for the last couple weeks. We really needed to get out of the house. It was chilly, cold, and rainy. We decided that since C.D. “BUZZ” Besadny Anadromous Fisheries Facilities was having their open house today, we would check it out. We have never been there during the open house.
I have heard so many wonderful things about Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW), that when we had the chance to review it I was really excited. I have been wanting to teach my son how to write better and understand some of the things he is writing. He isn’t very good with sentences and paragraphs. Now parts of speech he is pretty good at, which was his strength as we worked through this.
Fall is my favorite time of year. I think it’s my daughters favorite time of year as well, as she is really into observing the leaves changing colors. It’s not warm but it’s not cold. We can enjoy the outdoors with out the heat and humidity. My favorite is the fall baking….oh the wonderful smells in the air. Taking walks with the kids and listening to the leaves crunch!
This has been one week that I am glad that it is over. I am hoping that next week is much better and more positive week! It has been a pretty relaxing day. I wanted to do something with my daughter that would give her a great memory. Today we decided that we were going to paint. We picked out a tutorial from Cinnamon Cooney’s YouTube Channel.
The leaves are starting to slowly fall off the trees here. They are slowly starting to change their colors. In a couple weeks we should be at our peak fall colors. I was hoping to find some read leaves but no such luck so we used what we had. If you have leaves that are starting to fall this would be the perfect craft for fall. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to as I let my daughter go to town on the gluing. I think red would have added a little more color too! So may another craft like this will be in the works for us.
