On Mark, Get Set....

One week left! One week to pull this house together and be ready to start lessons. This has been a fast and beautiful summer, and my children have gained quite a few new skills. E, training with the big boys, has pretty much lived at the gym; he trains 28 hours a week! He is ready to compete as a level 7 gymnast this winter. e earned Most Valuable Swimmer in the 8 and under category for summer swim team, and can't wait to get back in the pool this fall. They've both gained handwork and painting skills....but shhhh...don't tell E that! I'm not sure he realized what he was doing. ;)

So, onward! Weather and botony are up first. e has her weather vane ready, and her weather journal arrived yesterday. E has been looking closer at our garden, and I found a few torn-apart flowers last week. Here we go!
