On Thursday mornings Jack attends a preschool program at Broadturn Farm from 9:30 to 12 and Grace is at school so Eve and I have some special girl time together. We have been having so much fun together. This week we went on an autumn scavenger hunt, read lots of books and painted with apples. Many more pictures to come (hopefully soon!) including visits from Maddy, Poppy, Memere and Pepere, Jack's first day at Broadturn and catching up on all of our fun autumn activities.

Jack started his first dance class at the Maine State Ballet last week. He has dance class every Wednesday morning. Jack couldn't wait to get there and get dancing! Jack has waited so patiently over the past few years to begin dance classes and I am so happy for him.

We have settled into a new morning routine....we wake up, eat breakfast, brush teeth, get dressed and then gather together in our art room for some writing, drawing or project time. It is this room of ours that bring us all together before we begin the 'busyness' of our day.

Jack started playing soccer on Tuesday. I am so excited for him. Jack is on a co-ed team with ten other players. Jack is an amazing soccer player and he loved his first practice! Jack will be playing every Tuesday until the middle of October.
So, I guess it's really official now...I am a certified "soccer mom," complete with a mini-van and all! :)

While we did not discuss the events of September 11, 2001, we did talk about the many ways we can be kind, the ways to solve conflict, the ways we can change the world to be a better place. May the colors created by a child's own two hands give us all hope and reassurance of the goodness that is.

The workshop began with a coloring page showing a farmer holding a crate of tomatoes. Eve loves to color so she was very excited to get her own little bucket of crayons for her picture.
Pineland Farms is such a beautiful place. This is the path that we walked, which led us from the garden area back to the classroom.
Eve walking back to the classroom with her tomatoes and large green pepper in hand!
