that transition month between summer and fall usually has us outdoors a lot, but with Steven's injury, we were not able to get out as much as we like. The boys did ride their bikes, of course.
We did a fair amount of pastel work relating to geography and our nature studies.
The little boys enjoyed playing on a downed tree from hurricane Irene.
frog, dragonfly and backyard yard pastels
We made fall leaf cookies for the first day of fall. I didn't have a leaf shaped cookie cutter, so we gathered a few leaves and used them as templates for our cookies.
Quentin set up his paints outside to do portraits en plein air.
Katie gathered some willow branches and made an Indian game with the boys.
They also made corn husk dolls.
She also took them to gather Magnolia seed pods for a Nature swap...
