A Quick Update

Here's what we've been up to the past few days:

We harvested potatoes grown in our very own garden. So far this is Ellie's favorite thing to harvest because it involves getting right in the dirt and digging around.

Ethan enjoyed his first Red Vine, one of my all-time favorite treats.

Ellie had her first soccer game. This is as close as she got to playing. She's been really shy and has refused to play or practice, except at home. We're hoping that as we keep going to practice and games she'll get more comfortable with the whole thing. She did like the treats at the end, though!

We went to the aquarium, and Ethan loved the fish. He wanted to get right up close to the tank to watch them.

And, Ethan is now crawling/scooting/rolling everywhere. He has a funny little army crawl that is his fastest method of transportation. But he'll basically do anything he needs to do to get where/what he wants. One of his favorite spots to be is under the kitchen table.

Ellie and I start our "homeschool" today. So, wish us luck! If anyone is interested to see the things we're doing let me know. I've been thinking about posting all of our activities and what we're studying each week so you can use the ideas if you want.


  1. I would love to know what your topics are and how you are teaching her! I think that is awesome!

  2. I enjoy reading your blog and would love to see/hear what you are doing for "homeschooling". I would like to do some activities with my daughter but am not totally sure where to start. :)
