It’s officially autumn in Georgia
I don’t mean the actual official date of the beginning of autumn.
I mean the cool, crisp morning air
The pull out your jeans and scarves and not die of a heat stroke autumn.
It was also the first week of homeschool for the littlest Larsen’s.
Boy, did we start th school year with a bang!
First day field trip, adventures, and so much more going on here in our little piece of Heaven.
Sunday was my last day leading my Bible study,
Fresh Start, online.
While, I did my best to prepare my heart and mind for my last broadcast my husband was out bringinin the firewood.
When I say this man is a hard worker, I mean it.
He slows down long enough to rest a bit and he’s back on another project.
Monday, we finished out some appointments and headed to Ellijay looking for an apple orchard.
We ended up at Mercier Orchards and fell in love.
I don’t know why being on a farm of any kind gets me so emotional, but I promise you I got choked up in our tour around the orchard.
It’s all such a miracle to see something as simply beautiful as an apple tree flourish and thrive and produce yummy fruit that we get to enjoy.
As a result of being out so much, baby girl came home with sniffles.
“I need my mason. My healthy hurts.”
Her “mason” is a homeopathic blend that works wonders on her sniffles and allergies.
Praise the Lord it didn’t last long.
Since our entire lives are packed away I have been trying to grow a small classroom tools set. From puzzles to crayons to wooden tool sets.
I wish life had been this simple for my older 3 boys when they were this age. It’s like learning is more
focused and condensed.
I have the privilege now of really getting to the core of early literacy. If I could just get the day to day stuff to slow down a bit
or maybe just better time management is all I need.
This week was full of studying the letter A & the /a/ it makes. Of course we jumped in with apples and the color red.
I researched preschool curriculum until
i couldn’t see straight and then one night at about 2:30 am I woke up knowing which one we needed most.
I purchased the Peaceful Preschool curriculum and was so beside myself I couldn’t sleep.
As a result my kids hand a deeper, richer experience in learning this week than they probably ever have.
Wr tried Jefferson’s for lunch one day. It’s in the old downtown area and we were so happy with this burger joint. Man was it yummy.
One of the hardest things about moving somewhere new is simply changing gears.
Discovering new places can be fun and nerve racking too.
This day was a blast.
G: “How you doin?”
I began working on brightening the work space and living space. All the brown in the camper is going to be depressing when all the trees have lost their leaves. There’s only so much brown I can stand.
We wrapped up our week with pizza at The Crushed Tomato in town. It’s new to us and apparently a local hotspot that you didn’t see coming as you pulled up.
The building itself is a diamond in the rough.
The inside is were the magic happens.
Brick oven pizza and hand dipped ice cream.
Me: Who are you talking to Sissy?
Okay. I can end with that.
Actually, one last shameless plug for the new Bible study group starting November 4th.
