My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:





A science unit got Gv all excited about chemistry, so she chose "Kitchen Chemistry" as one of her 4-H project books for the year. This pH investigation using purple cabbage was SO fun!





We continue to slowly add back in pre-Covid activities and the hike to the Dali museum for its homeschool day was so worth it!





We were probably most excited for the return of one of our favorite activities - the Pops in the Park concert! The weather couldn't have been better and it was so nice to be back!





After staying home last year, it was great to head out for trick-or-treating again this year! Gv likes to come up with her own costumes and this one was inspired by her Saturday-morning-cartoon-time-with-Dad.



And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to these past two months? Take a look and see:

The beginning of the school year is always a crazed time for us, but this year seemed especially so, between G still having to deal with Covid in the classroom and me and Gv attempting to venture outside the house again to re-start a few of our regular activities.

I came across this Polaroid of Gv with the cousin's hamster from the summer and it's wild how grown-up she looks...





We were so excited for some of our regular homeschool activities in the area to start back up again. We've got several parks, preserves, and museums in the area that hold monthly homeschool program days. The Ringling Museum is one of our favorites:




We were also excited to participate in the Smithsonian Museum Day again this year. We chose a new museum that's focused on glass and we declared it easily the best museum in the state!

Making her own art



Our area orchestra also started back to in-person performances and we got to attend a pre-opening night concert that was fabulous!




And that pretty much wrapped up our adventures over the past two months! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
