Here's what has been going on in our neck of the woods:
My sweet Olivia turned 5!! Can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday that she made her first appearance in this world!
Our parish also enjoyed the annual Oktoberfest! The kids had tons of fun! They each got a new shirt to wear for the festivities! Originally, I wanted all three of them to have the skeleton shirt as this goes along with our recent science studies. However, I couldn't find it in Nathan or Olivia's sizes, so I ended up with two other ones that I thought were cute!
This week, we focused on the 5 senses. A great resource that I found is called The Body Book!
I can't tell you how much fun this activity was! Even Olivia and I made one. Take a look....
Family Fun Magazine. The are called Decoupage Pumpkins. Although I don't have a photo of the finished product yet (they are still drying), here are some pictures of us making a huge mess!
Here's what the finished products are supposed to look like. I don't think ours will look like this, but we sure had fun making the mess!
