Apple day

Today was the anniversary of Johnny Appleseed's birth, so our history lesson consisted of a quick bio of him, and then for art class we made felt magnets of (what else?!) apples. We also had apples for lunch, although Abigail was very concerned that I was going to make her eat the seeds since we learned about Johnny Appleseed. She is so advanced when it comes to learning and such that sometimes I forget that she still sees the world through four-year-old eyes! Here are the kids with their apple magnets...forgive David's expression, but he was going outside to eat his lunch and his mother was really trying his patience by making him pose for a picture...but at least he complied without arguing or complaining, despite my "unreasonableness"!

Here is a picture of Abigail working some addition on the chalkboard. She really is something else.And yes, she is wearing a Christmas shirt. I tried to explain to her that it's for Christmastime, not for September, but then I thought, what does it matter?! I let her wear it and she was so enamored with her pretty Christmas shirt that it took some convincing to get her to exchange it for pajamas tonight.

Incidentally, today was school day #40 -- hooray!
