3: The Chinese Garden is a magical wonderland of water, patterns, and plants. This year we learned about the three friends of winter: bamboo, pine and pear. As many plants whiter during the winter, these treasures bloom.
4: The kids kept their rooms clean for a whole month (minor nagging from Mom) to earn this field trip. Afterward we ate at McCormics. | February: I Love to See the Temple

20: October | Picking my pumpkin!
23: November November is to be savored because it's an in-between time. We're past the start of school but not yet into the holiday hustle. We can enjoy our normal routine. Ella has started joining us for school and likes practicing her numbers and letters. Avery does Saxon Math and reads simple readers. Jacob adores going to school. He quickly made friends and his teacher reports that he "is a valuable asset to her class."
24: We Love You!
25: !! | Merry Christmas!
