Around the House→ I read a statement about having a computer in the kitchen. Basically that it shouldn’t be there, a kitchen is for nourishing body and soul. My laptop is in the kitchen. As I was pondering this statement I thought of how many times I get distracted in the kitchen by just “checking one quick thing”. So, I moved my computer out of the kitchen. Now I am trying to find a small spot in the house to put my computer and some of my stuff. I think I just created a project for myself this weekend! Where have you managed to carve out a spot of your own?
Fall Kitchen→ I am going to try and start doing a bulk of my shopping just twice a month.
Tea Time→ no tea time this week! We took a field trip instead, see below.
Feast Day→ We celebrated St. Francis and Our Lady of the Rosary.

Bird Unit: Reading Burgess Bird Book
We are hoping to wrap up our bird unit next week. While we have been reading the Burgess Bird Book each day, we haven’t done too much else in terms of birds. The weather has been beautiful this week, so we have taken advantage of lots of outside time. Besides I am a big believer that much learning is to be had away from workbooks. Jonah is very anxious to see the new owl movie Legends of the Guardians, and I think it will be a good way to finish our bird unit.
We have spotted several Blue Jays this week. We usually hear them before we can see them. Actually, Jonah hears them before anyone else, then he comes racing to find everyone, then we go racing to the window. All the commotion usually scares the poor bird away!
Along the Alphabet Path: “F” Week - F was for frog and fairy this week. We read several frog books and it was fun to read about St. Francis during F week. We also ate goldfish crackers several times for lunch as well as french fries! We did a few little fairy crafts from a kit I picked up on clearance at the store. I neglected to take pictures, but let's just say I am glad I didn't pay full price for the kit!
Please join in on the fun and link up your week. Hope you have a great weekend!
