The Walnut Acre Daily - Monday Fun

Words to Live By
Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace for help in time of need.  ~ Hebrews 4:16

Working, Learning and Playing Together
Here are some bits a pieces from our day. 

In the top left corner Michael and Lauren are coloring pictures that went with today's lessons. Later they went outside and played awhile. Lauren wanted Austin to bring his dinosaur collection out to play with so he did. Michael enjoyed his new bike

I've been teaching Lauren and Michael to play Connect Four. We played one day last week and they really didn't seem to get the idea at all. Today they seemed to understand the idea of getting four in a row but not the idea of blocking each other. But they had fun and are learning. 

This afternoon Michael and I took a walk. The creek is dry now so we walked in the dry creek bed and climbed around on the banks. Then we raced home. Michael won.

 See all these clouds. It started raining soon after we got back from our walk.

Austin and Amanda were the cooks today. Austin fried us some hamburgers for lunch. Amanda made Chicken and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes.  Good stuff !!!!

The top left picture is of Doug and Austin doing math together. The other three are Doug, CJ and Michael having fun with an Etch a Sketch. 

CJ, Michael and Lauren decided to play "office" this evening. I'm not sure what kind of office that had but it took a lot of setting up. 

This evening Doug took Michael and Austin to their Scout meetings. They just got home and Michael is going to sleep. After he's asleep Austin, Amanda and I will have some reading time.
