Feels like Fall!

Week Five is in session, as is the fall weather and it made for such a great day!  We spent most of it outside, starting with our Forest Friends class in Auburn.  This week's theme was 'Beautiful Butterflies' and it was a lot of fun.  We came home to start our study of the letter 'E,' transportation, and continue our lesson on Fall.  Here are some of today's photos:

At the Butterfly Garden at the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve in Auburn for Forest Friends.
 We spotted a caterpillar munching on parsley!
 Butterflies!
 And bees!

 Once home, we stayed outdoors and had lunch and read our homeschooling books for today on the deck.
