Happy Autumn

It’s finally arrived, Autumn. It seems it was just last month I was sitting out back looking up at the tree buds anxiously awaiting spring. Now a walk around the block proved the leaves are ready for fall. With each new seasonal change, the nature table has been set up awaiting any new treasures that might be found. Also, the fall stories have been brought out waiting in the basket for little hands to sort thru, finding old favorites along with a new one. Into our bed, the little ones hop with stories in hand. Of course, the new story is first. Mama has searched for the perfect Autumn story and the smiles across the Little’s face lets me know I chose right. Then the favorite story is read. What would Autumn be without The Apple Cake by Nienke van Hichtum? This isn’t just a favorite of the Little’s but has become a family classic. Well, how could you read a lovely story as that without wondering into the kitchen to make an apple cake for breakfast of your own? So that is what we did. With our bellies full it was preparation time for another fall treat.childrens museum 340

Nicely waiting for snack time. After clean up, we stuck with the same circle time as yesterday. Little Sis is loving the apple verses and continues entertaining us through out the day. For the main lesson, I told the story The Big Red Apple http://www.mainlesson.com/display.php?author=bailey&book=hour&story=apple. We talked about how the animals are preparing for fall. The next few days lessons take us outside getting our hands dirty. Wishing everyone a happy fall season.
