We also found this movie on Netflix, http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Nature_A_Murder_of_Crows/70155153?trkid=2361637
Awesome addition to our raven and crow study! Did you know the collective noun for crows was a 'murder of crows'? Side note- the collective noun for baboons is a 'congress of baboons'. Snicker.
Saw this tutorial on drawing apples or pumpkins with chalk pastels http://www.hodgepodge.me/2011/10/apple-or-pumpkin-a-pastels-tutorial/
I actually bought some chalk pastels over the summer, and this is the perfect introduction to using them!
Last night was the first night in...well, too long,...that we had Family Game Night. After a walk in the gorgeous Fall weather we came home to a rousing game of Rummykub. Haven't played it yet? Great game for math and logic and just plain ole fun! They need a 12-Step program for it, that's how addicted we were.
This weekend is the local arts-crafts fair, Mossy Creek Barnyard Festival. I can't wait! We haven't been in years because the Georgia National Fair is always the same week...but I think the kiddos are 'burnt out' on the fair and were excited to have a change of 'scenery'.
What fun Fall things have you and your family enjoyed? Please share!
