Happy last weekend of October! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable autumn and were able to make some good memories. I’m so thankful we did our apple orchard outing when we did because Caroline has been sick off and on since then. We’ve had spectacular color this year. I wish we had been able to take some more drives, but I’m thankful for all the colorful blessings we have enjoyed.
We finally had our first frost yesterday and the leaves are falling quickly now. We’ve definitely turned to corner toward November and winter. I love this time of year.
This Week’s Artwork
Today’s artwork is Knitting Girl by Albert Anker.
I wrote about Albert Anker in Simple Living This Week No. 103. I’ve used many of his paintings in this series of posts and I listed those as well if you missed them. I enjoy the homey nature of his work.
I spent some time this week reviewing my files about right brained learners, suggestions that came from our testing experiences, etc. I felt like I needed a mental reset of some kind. I was reminded of some important things about how children like this learn.
Even though I’ve been homeschooling a long time, I still have to step back from time to time and refocus. You would think it would all be settled in my mind and planning, but every stage of learning and development brings new aspects to consider.
This was move to my other website here: Living in Historic Times – 2022 Elections
What is going on in your world? I hope you’ll leave a comment!
