We have also been working through Adventures in American History by My Father's World. We are updating our history timeline's and getting a lot of good reading in.
Usborne's Science in the kitchen has provided some neat projects, but I have to admit this isn't my favorite subject so we don't do more than about one project a week.
All of the kids are learning to play piano as well. This is an exercise of great patience for both mommy/teacher and child. But the benefits are very great. Being able to play real music is a confidence booster, worthwhile accomplishment and wonderful outlet for energy and creativity. I thoroughly enjoy hearing the finished products and even the stumbling efforts on the way there.
We took several outings including trips up to the mountains and the local homecoming parade and game.
Fall brought decorations and Thanksgiving fun as well.
It has been a good fall.
