March was a really beautiful month here in GA! And the beautiful weather was accompanied by allergies, sunburns, and pollen-covered cars. But it was still beautiful. 🙂
March was also full of soccer. (Go, Team Mexico!) Autumn is loving every minute of every game and practice. She looks forward to it all week and practices with her Daddy in every spare moment he can get. We are loving this soccer league and, I have to admit, debating over whether or not to return to Upward in the fall. She is learning a lot more about the game here and gets more playing time with the smaller teams, but we love the Upward program. Thoughts?
We wrapped up our Owl Moon unit (I’m so far behind on blogging these – ACK!) and made cupcakes to celebrate. Autumn’s favorite part was dissecting an owl pellet. We also finished the semester of co-op. We enjoyed our time at Family Night, watching performances put on by various classes. We had a couple display tables set up to show off the work the kids did in my Great Artists class. This class was so much fun to teach. Really looking forward to doing it again next semester!
The garden is going again. I got started very late this year, but finally built one (of several) raised beds from reclaimed wood. Also, put together a couple simple compost bins, and did lots of work clearing the garden area of weeds and laying down cardboard and mulch. This is just one of those jobs that never seems to get finished. We’re really enjoying our botany curriculum and Autumn built a light hut this month to grow herbs.
We had a great family outing to visit the Ocmulgee National Monument for a Lantern Light tour this month. We have visited the Indian mounds several times, but this visit was magical. We had a ranger give a guided tour teaching about the history of the area all by lantern light. The path was lit with flickering luminarias and everyone carried a small lantern with a candle inside. The night was gorgeous and our visit couldn’t have been more perfect.
Oh, and the toothfairy made some visits, too! Autumn is now toothless in front and finding eating very difficult. But she sure is cute! Well, maybe not with this face. 😉
