the past week in photos…

A few snapshots of what we have been up to this past week, as well as what my foxling has helped me cook. This school week has been AMAZING; we got more done in two days than you would imagine. On Monday, we were at lessons until 5pm, and happily so ! We have been working thru her Forensics curriculum, and fingerprinted each other yesterday. Messy fun, it was. The weather has finally committed to the season, and we have had explosions of color and leaves to gaze at… which inspired the first pie of the season, pumpkin, of course !

For food, we have been keeping it simple; rice blends, eggs, tuna, salad, ginger broth, and a beautiful sausage and kale soup, YUM !

And who can resist a box of halloween candy from California’s own See’s Candies ?! Not my foxling, that’s for sure !

We spent some rare family time together on Saturday, hiking thru the woods near UConn… it was a slightly chilly morning, and perfect for a bit of exercise. The Historian was radiantly happy, examining the wooly bears, milkweed pods, streams and assorted wildlife we happened to glimpse.

My foxling and I are spending 10 days at my parent’s home in November for an unexpected break !  We are busy planning, readying our supplies and getting as much school work accomplished as possible before we go. She still loves her online latin class, but I will admit… it is a royal pain in my ass. I can teach her more quickly and with better results that her current professor, and I find it to be a real time-suck in the middle of our week. She is enjoying the discussions and the kids, but admits we do more on our own. Whichever umbrella school we chose for next year, I will be back to teaching her latin, and we are both happy with the plan.

I hope you all had a fantastic week, and that you are finding time to enjoy the season in your neck of the woods… =)
