I have been planning like a crazy woman, and I think we are ready.
The girls woke up to these boxes this morning full of school supplies.
and I woke up to this~~ a much needed cup o' coffee.

It was so special to be with my dear friend Ana and her family again. They showed us so many lovely places, and I really enjoyed Massachusetts (gotta love those dunkin donuts iced coffees). We also were lucky enough to go to NYC, DC, and Virginia. More on all that later.....
We have been gradually getting back into the swing of things around here and I have personally been waiting for a bit of good weather to get outside. I have some things that just must go in the ground.
The girls are having a great time being back with all their doll stuff, and Sofia was over the moon to be back at ballet on Monday. The house is upside down, so I really have not been knitting much, will get back to it soon.
Can't believe the school year is almost over, and then I will have a 3rd grader and a kindergartner on my hands. These years are moving so fast. I cant believe I am still homeschooling, thought it was just going to be for a year......and we just keep going.
So happy I am able to be with these girls all the time so I don't miss too much.
Need to do some catching up with our schoolwork though, had a nice long break due to the trip. We all learned so much though, went to many museums, including the amazing American Museum on Natural History in Central Park, Plimoth Plantation, DC, Williamsburg......I am sure something sunk in.

School has been going good. I am finally coming to terms with the fact that everything is never going to get done. As usual my expectations are always high, and I am realizing it is quality not quantity that matters.
For example I had a stack of things I wanted to do on thursday, (latin, language arts, science), the math got done at least, and for some reason we began talking about right triangles, I ran upstairs to grab a geometry template I had, and she was off. She spent and hour making all the shapes with the stencil and labeling them. I took the opportunity to read What's your angle Pythagoras? aloud, and that was it. An official geometry rabbit trail.
I absolutely adore when something comes up and I have the materials, "in house" like that.
Next week I will pull the Montessori three part cards on triangles and let her play with some shape models I have.
We also have been really interested in what's going on with the birds in our backyard.
There is a great website, where you can post and keep track of migrations of all sorts of thing. A great way to teach about data collection.
check it out here~
Bye for now.

Our last day in Los Angeles was so fun. We spent it in Griffith Park and went to the Observatory to watch the Planetarium show. It was incredible. The view from there was just amazing and the SUN!!
We even took the kids train ride and did the pony rides!
I wanted to share a picture of my first knitted/felted bag that I gave my mom. I was so pleased the way it came out.
Looking forward to jumping into this year, and getting back on schedule.
