A is for Apple; If I stay in Jesus I will have much fruit! Who wouldn't have fun learning about apples?! There is just so much to do with apples and they taste yummy!!! We were very busy this week trying to get all our fun projects done that we wanted to do. We started with the most important project; making apple crisp and applesauce with Mie Mie!!! As you can tell by Sawyer's face I think he ate as much as he was peeling!

L is for Leaf and I will live and grow in Jesus! We learned about a leaf gets its food; water, air and sun. Just like the leaf needs the tree to grow we also need to "live on" Jesus to grow! We went outside and collected different shapes, sizes and colors of leaves from our yard. When we brought them back in we talked about how each one was different from the other ones. Then we put the leaf on the counter with a piece of paper over it and took a crayon and rubbed it on the paper to make a sketching of the leaf!

I just can't believe that you are 7 months old and seeing all that you accomplished this past month is amazing! You had many "1st" this month and are growing every day into a little boy. We are super proud of you Carter and can't wait to see what next month has in store for you!

M is for Moon and reminds us that we are the light of the world! I really enjoyed the concept of this unit. The unit was about where the moon gets its light from; the sun. We are like the moon because we are to be a reflection of Jesus! We learned how the moon reflects off the sun by going into the bathroom and turning off the lights. We then took our dinosaur flashlight (the sun) and shined it into the mirror and the light that came off was the moon!

After our busy summer months we decided to do a little "summer school" before the year officially started to slowly get back into the routine of things. This year we will be using "My Father's World" curriculum and so far we love it! Our first unit was on Creation and I was so impressed with how quickly Sawyer learned what God made each day and that he is continuing to remember it!
