In the Moore household, September has traditionally been the month that we gear up to head back to school. Although we did gear up to head back to school, we changed venues this year; we have decided to do school from home. The kiddos were enthusiastic about the change and as I have always said about my "stay at home mom" years, I am the stay at home mom that isn't at home very much. We are approaching our homeschooling in much the same way. In the past month, we have ventured out of the house most days for building on academics, serving others and just living life. We have found that our time together as a family has been less rushed and centered around building our relationships rather than just "hurrying" to the next event.
I cannot believe this girl is 9!! She is so much fun to be around. She's sharp, thinks of others, loves to play the piano, read, do math and build her own lego creations!
And this one!! He will be 7 in just a few short weeks! He's a ball of energy, always has a nice thing to say about others, loves to do math and has stories for days!
Schooling at home gives us time to get outside together and do things like nature walks and really look around and thank God for His creations!
Studying the ants!
B loves to learn Spanish too!
On the first "chilly" day we had here in SoCal, we attempted to make applesauce.
We gave it a valiant effort, although it did not turn out.
Learning about taxonomy through sorting our shoes!
They love free time at the park!
A day at the Aquarium - we got to use "Google Maps" to find Papa's house and stop by for a visit!
On Fridays the kids go to a class with project-based learning in the morning and they are learning to sail on Friday afternoons! Here is B presenting things that represent him.
The kiddos making cupcakes for the ladies from the church staff!
It's been an action-packed fun-filled month and we are looking forward to see all that October holds!!
