This was too precious...they all played so quietly for almost 20mins this morning, all in the schoolroom. Everyone was doing their own thing.
I'm a Jack-o-Lantern with a great big grin.
I'm a Jack-o-Lantern with a candle in.
See my black and scary eyes.
Listen now for a big surprise.
The weather has been pretty wet lately but we have still managed to get outside most days. Its starting to get pretty chilly on our fingers.

Washing a pumpkin...first they draw a face on it

Some parents have asked me if the children really play with such simple toys as wooden trucks, knitted dolls, and natural items like rocks...the answer is YES, these rocks are played with every day...they are veggies in soup, bread, packages on trucks and trains, walls for animal homes, also counted and sorted. The imagination of a child is a wonderful thing if you give it wings!
Today we made pom pom snakes...these would be really cute with our own pom poms....maybe next year when the children are a little older and able to work a little longer on handwork
I love the way Tiger is standing...the little ones are enjoying music class as much as the older children.

This grouse has been hanging around the yard for the past two weeks, he is getting used to the children's noise and excitement.
