We have been learning so much about squirrels this month. We have read volumes about them, done lots of art projects, hidden nuts for them, gone on nature walks in search of their homes up in the trees, made and eaten squirrel snacks (mixed nuts and dried fruits).

We also learned a lot about apples and pumpkins, went apple picking and picked out pumpkins too. We made an apple pie, and lots of other apple foods. We have been enjoying fall a lot, and it has been so beautiful this year. The weather has been perfect.

Penelope has been continuing with her ASL class, and both girls love open gym day. We have been enjoying weekly playground days with our local homeschool friends, took a trip to the children's museum with some friends, the girls carved pumpkins with their Daddy and toasted pumpkin seeds. We are very excited for Halloween and it is all the girls talk about.
