Middle Ages Finally~

Well we are a bit behind in the Story of the World but we have finally reached the Midde Ages. 
England in all it's glory~castles, knights, lords and ladies. 
There are so many activities to consider during this period in history~
I hope to make time to do some fun ones.

We have lots of extra reading planned.  
Today is a stormy day so hopefully we can hit the stack of books we found at the library. 
Some include-The Legend of King Arthur, and George and the Dragon, and Knights and Castles 50 hands on activities to experience the Middle Ages.

Fall is here~

Indian Summer.......around here it is so lovely.  The leaves are changing and the the chill is setting in the air. 
The Woolly Bear caterpillars are everywhere!
Last week we went on a leaf hunt in our neighborhood.
We found lots of beautiful specimens.
After collecting we did leaf rubbings, checked out the veins a little closer, and read some books out of the fall basket.
