Play Learning

It's official!  We have started the school year.  Mostly our days are filled with laughter, some learning through play, and some learning through intentional activities. So by way of recap, here was the month of September and what we learned. Aug 24-Aug 28 was the Letter G, the Garden of Eden and the 7 days of creation. We memorized Gen 1:31.

One moment these kids are having the greatest day of their life enjoying rides at a kiddie park. So much joy, so much laughter. But moments later when I needed her to sit on the other side of the stroller so I could put the baby where she had chosen to sit.
