Pumpkin Patch Fun

Last weekend, my family visited our favorite pumpkin patch. The weather was perfect for parading among the paths to find the perfect pumpkins. My kids get pretty serious about which pumpkins to bring home with us. It was such a joy to see there smiling face and learn their finally determining factors of their chosen gourds.

Back to School 2017


After a short break in the Summer season, we started back on schooling this month. Though we take a break, I still look for opportunities for the kids to learn whether it be field trips, documentaries, non-fiction books, hands-on-experiments, and so forth.  They are always learning but we don’t keep to an as strict schedule ( if you can call it that) as we do during the cooler months.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Eclipse of 2017

“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia

I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!

First Bread of the “BER” months


I’m pleased that even though it’s a roaring upper 90s outside that I brought myself to cook a dessert bread for my family. Everyone is all about Fall and I’m all there with them but the truth is, Summer isn’t officially over on the calendar till Friday, September 22nd. That’s right, Summer is here to stay in Oregon for three more weeks.  I want to get all the cool weather clothes out so badly but I’m stopping myself and enjoying these last few weeks of warm weather and sunny skies. Autumn is my favorite season so I’m really eager for the season change though!
