WOW! We read A LOT of books in September! We had a total of 181 books read. Let's see if we can beat that number for October!
Robinette's Apple Orchard Field Trip
We had a wonderful time learning about the apple orchard! We toured the orchard, navigated a maze together, made apple cider, enjoyed donuts and picked our own apples. It was a beautiful day!
A Visit from Fr. Dave
We had a fun classroom visitor this past week. Father Dave came to speak with us about the Bible and important facts we have learned in religion. We had many interesting questions and comments for him! We can't wait for his next visit soon!
