Our School Year So Far...

This has been a very busy school year.  A little too busy, if I do say so myself!  In fact, I was about to throw in the towel about three weeks into the school year (thank goodness for great homeschool friends that I can lean on when I need to!).

Here's a glimpse into our busy schedule:

Enjoying the last days of Summer with a friend at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
Playing along the Mississippi after Jr. Rangers (Mussel class and a boat tour)

The girls started tap/ballet/jazz

Celebrated Elise's 5th birthday at the American Girl Store

Regular weekly study dates at Silverwood Park while Elise is at her Doodlebugs class

Had our first Homeschool Mystery Day (the kids look scared because a major storm was blowing in)

Millie found and took care of 4 sweet baby kitties.  

Took the bus to piano lessons a few times.  Piano is going great!

Lots of fun science experiments!

Painting and fun at the MN Children's Museum

Lots of weekend exploring in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa

4-H kickoff, Elise's first one ever!  They had a meeting, hay ride, bonfire, etc.

Style Pile at the dance studio and Chinese food

Eloise Butler Wildflower Sanctuary.  Millie took a Poet-Tree class, Elise and I explored

Nature study/craftiness

Enjoying the last bits of Fall with a hike and picnic on Lake Superior

Apple orchard with great friends

Elise is making friends now, too!

Team building with the homeschool group
This is just some of what has been keeping us busy 3-5 days per week.  Phew!  I fully expect to slow down the week of Thanksgiving...
