October 25 - 31
This life, living and learning with my three daughters and their Papa, is by turns glorious and mundane, messy and beautiful, challenging and oh-so-simple. Not even by turns. All at once, ordinary and sparkly fully encompassed in these unschooling days. We read books, play, eat, tidy, dance, shout, watch shows, listen to music, run and climb, create and volunteer, discuss and rest. Living life at it's own pace. Learning happens at each child's pace, with regard's to each child's interests.
And since I'm sharing it at my own pace, here's the last of October's pics, including Halloween dress-up fun. :)
frosted pumpkin cookies
rollerskating with our girl scout troop
playing at the county park that we visit a couple of times each week
making ripples, watching them make patterns
Throwing stones in a creek is educational, right?
