End to Summer

As Summer winds down...
Grady turned a broken down yard car into a sprinkler...
We stopped by Cumberland Falls in Daniel Boone National Forest...
Cora tried pretty successfully to use chop sticks for the first time...
Grady harvested and dried out his corn crop... and we successfully popped it for breakfast...
Cora and Grady and Chester made a huge mud field in the back yard...
We thanked and thank again all our friends and family for making the birthdays so much fun...
Cora and Chester keep breaking the rules and playing in the resting garden bed...
Chester discovered the joy of popping birthday balloons...
Cora ate a delicious and messy dark chocolate covered Graham cracker... and School started up...
Welcome to Home school Kindergarten...

Grady begins reading practice on Starfall.... and plays with Friday School project slime.

Friday school is on Fridays in rotating houses where different mommies host a project or lesson.
Tuesdays Grady takes Yoga, Thursdays Spanish. Wednesdays might get busy soon too. I'm also thinking about joining a Monday Geography Club to rotate along with our Monday Library days. Last but not least Grady and I have discovered Dreambox... a terrific online math curriculum keeper that gives mom progress reports... he has completed half of Kindergarten already! yea!
Cora is getting two year molars and potty training some, and Grady's bottom front teeth are getting wiggly from time to time.
