Learning to knit

I decided the kids should learn to knit to have one more thing to do quietly to keep their hands busy whilst I read to then for hours on end each evening. Our dear friend was willing to take them on as students for the afternoon. We learned to cast on and knit or garter stitch. And we've been invited back to learn to pearl and bind off in a couple weeks.

LA County Fair 2013

We made our annual visit to the fair. Explored farther than we'd ever gone and missed the pig races in trade. Nobody was too upset. (:

We just finished reading wizard of oz last month, so this was fun to see in their book area. There were several books we read this year highlighted. Around the world in 80 days, journey to the center of the earth, and,of course, the little house books:

This word search was a fun find. Just yesterday, I took pics of grandpa and Sy working their word search books at our "kitchen table". Grandpa bought one for each child and they've enjoyed them tons.

Swimming at grandpa's

A favorite perk of our current location:
Swimming everyday after our school work is done. (Then being really tired for soccer practice!)

Lego store

In need of a part from the RideMakers store at downtown Disney, we made a day of it. Here we are playing at YGE Lego store. They have bins of Legos to build cars. Then you can race your creations on their track.
After playing, we stopped by Rain Forest Cafefor lunch.
