Our discussion the past week has been about Autumn.
Here is a sample of the conversation we have with Dorian!

Mum or Dad: What season are we in?
Dorian: Autumn!
Mum or Dad:What happens in Autumn?
Dorian: Its cold.... its dark outside and ummmmm, the leaves fall off the trees and then the birds fly away to warm places.

It has been raining almost non-stop the last two weeks. So, we have had to do alot of indoor activities. Last Wed we went to his friends new house and we made really cute "leaf" necklaces with beads. The kids all did a really great job! I will post pictures of that soon.

We also have been baking alot. Ash found an unreal deal on cake mix at a local grocery store and it was $10 boxes of cake mix FREE! So, we have had fun making those with a new stand mixer we got. Dorian loves baking. His favorite part is cracking the eggs then he loooves to eat the batter!

We have a busy week planned!
Mon-Ash is taking Dorian to the pet store and also to the movie store to pick out a movie.
Tue- Ash is taking Dorian to the zoo!
Wed- Craft play date with his friends Avery & Charlize! They are going to make hand turkeys!

Halloween Party

We had a small halloween party at Dorian's friend's Avery & Sissy's new house.The kids made cookies and then got to decorate them. Then they made cute little tea light pumpkin holders. They had mason jars and put glue and then pasted tissue paper on them. Then they put pumpkin faces on them. You put a tea light in them and they glow, they came out really cute.

Here is Dorian working on his letters. The last few days of school we have been working on the letters in his name, his address and birthday. We also have been working on left hand and right hand, which he mastered very fast. The music part is still his favorite!

More fall crafts

Here is Dorian and Isabelle (the little girl I watch after school) painting leaves and then pressing them onto paper. It was alot of fun and got the kids outside to look for all different kinds of leaves.

Then the kids helped me make choc chip cookies which came out really good!
