Weekly Wrap-Up ~ A two week break {kind of}

For the past two weeks we have been taking a bit of a break from the three r’s  so that we could spend a bit more time on some other stuff…

During our “break” we learned about the life and times of William Tyndale.

We spent time enjoying our beautiful autumn weather…and completing a couple of Autumn Nature Studies…

we compared apples to apples

and we observed autumn leaves.

We took advantage of our little town’s abundance of fresh, local apples and  canned a whole bunch of applesauce…

And we even picked a couple of pumpkins at our favorite pumpkin patch

We’ve been refreshed  by our little break…and we’re ready to resume the three r’s.  Now I just have to go clean up the big blanket fort in our basement so there’s a place for us to work :)

I love those little breaks from the regular curriculum. We always come back with a fresh attitude. The applesauce looks delicious.

Part of the reason we homeschool all year is so that we can tak just the kind of break you are speaking of. We processed apples, too! These breaks are part of the joy of homeschooling. I'm so glad to know that you share that joy!
Happy homeschooling...
