Back-to-school camp-out

We celebrated the end of summer by going camping at Garner State Park for three nights. It was a long drive, but a beautiful park.

Second day of school picture

Most people take a picture on the first day of school, but I missed it. So here's our second day of school picture. I've been spending all my spare moments preparing for teaching Latin (8 different classes, 3 year olds through 10th graders), which is why I'm so behind on posting pictures!

Timmy's recitation


'There was an old man with a beard,
who said, "It is just as I feared!
Two owl and a hen, four larks and a wren,
have all made their nest in my beard!" '

Good clean fun



In our first week "back to school," but before classes, we made our own bubble solution, and made a big mess getting clean.

Herding goats


My sister wanted some help herding goats to the front of her property. We're always happy for a good excuse to spend a little time on her farm. It's been so dry, cracks have opened up in the ground, and when you fill them with water, frogs come out! She shared a home-grown watermelon with us.

Locomotion revisited



Our last playgroup of the summer was a Locomotion again. Zachary was much more independent now that he's walking.
