Today was yet another absolutely gorgeous day, fresh morning and warm afternoon. We headed for the country and enjoyed the crisp red and orange colors that seem to permeate everything these days.
The other day we read a story, cannot remember now which it was (might have been Tiptoes), but it mentioned how the persimmons tree was empty of leaves yet full of ripe fruit. Kaleena reminded me that perhaps the big persimmons tree at the farm would now be bearing the sweet persimmons fruit, and today we checked, and there was indeed loads of little orange sweet persimmons fruits ready for eating. Kaleena and Keenan spent the morning coaxing the fruit down from the tree as the branches were quite high. We gathered a nice little pile, besides what they ate on the spot.
We enjoyed the beauty of the country lanes before we headed for our weekly homeschooling class.
The little ones made puppets today.
We used socks and paper plates and bags and an assortment of random nature finds as well as buttons, yarns, glitter, feathers and wool, and the children then were asked to create a forrest creature from these parts.
Next week there will be a puppet show using these lovely little puppets.
here is a rainbow trout in the making
Keenan made a bear
