Today at Hadlee's Homeschool was a big day! It's Darla's birthday and we have plans to go outdoors and hunt for some fall leaves for our afternoon project. The morning started out as usual. I sung the good morning song, we did calendar and the weather. I had sent a note home to the parents about making sure that the kids were bundled up as we were going to go outside and collect fall leaves. When everyone arrived at school it was raining pretty hard. I was getting a bit concerned about us being able to head outdoors in the afternoon for leaf collecting.
We went about our day in hopes of a dryer afternoon. We had a small party for Darla in the morning with a cake. A blue cake of course - her favorite!
We all sang Happy Birthday to her and had cake and gummy bears! ( her other favorite!)
|Happy Birthday to Darla!|
|Blue Birthday cake!|
By the time the girls were awake the rain seemed to have stopped - at least for the time being. We all bundled up and headed outside to collect some of these beautiful fall leaves before they were gone. We took a walk down the road near my house.
|How many will we find?|
|Did they find all of the hidden leaves?|

Overall it was a wonderful day at school. Hopefully they all took their projects home and hung them in the window to admire fall's beautiful colors.
I am blessed with a great group of girls as my students!
