Homeschooling and Life: Nov.4-Nov. 15, 2013

Looks like I'm in a habit of blogging every two weeks as opposed to one now. We've had a pretty good couple of weeks. Bug is currently learning about George Washington Carver, Theodore Roosevelt, and the story behind the first Thanksgiving. Doodles learned about Christianity last week (which of course she already knows a great deal about), and this week and next she is learning about Islam. Baby Girl is continuing to work on communication skills, enjoying "circle time," writing lines on the dry erase board, playing outside, putting shapes in containers, and making lots of messes as her curiosity is wide open. We are all LOVING the cooler weather and looking forward to the holidays. Here are some snapshots of the first half of November in our lives:
