I can understand why not many people want to leave San Diego.
As we're entering fall, though, I feel that we need to start our themes once again. Aside from (all of) us learning a lot through these themes, they also let us learn and explore many areas of San Diego that we don't normally visit. It helps set up craft and cooking activities, and gives us new topics to talk about.
So back to themes :)
This month we are going camping at Sequoia National Park. We are all very very excited about this trip as it will be our first camping trip in over a year and our first major camping trip since A was a baby.
With this in mind, forests seemed a natural theme for the month! I started the theme a few days into September, so I'm feeling a bit unprepared. We have been raiding our own bookshelves for books about forests and animals, and we also need to visit our library. We have talked about wildlife that lives in our local forests - deer, turkeys, birds, rabbits, and squirrels. We have also been working hard at creating our own tree out of mixed art methods - will post pictures soon :)
