Fall is HEEEERE!!!

When I said that title in my mind it sounded like Peach from Finding Nemo. One of my favorite lines:

[yawn] Morning. [gasps] It's morning, everyone! Today's the day! The sun is shining, the
tank is clean and we are getting out of--[gasps]--the tank is clean. The tank is clean!

The past week the weather has been so fallish. I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!! Fall is my FAVORITE!

Aren't they so cute in hoodies and jeans?!

Little Bo Peep helps me make my bed often. She will ask me to make her bed sometimes. She never wants to help with her own bed just wants it to be done. Well this morning a few minutes after she was up she said, "Mumma, I make my bed." And ran off to her room. I didn't really think anything of it til I was in her room a while after and this is what if found!

How GREAT is that?!

I was just reading a homeschooling mama's blog the other day and she was talking about a summer challenge for her son. Basically he has a chart for points to earn a prize. She had a list for all the different ways he can earn points. Making his bed is one way he can get points. Well Little Bo Peep has a similar chart for school it was intended for learning activities but after reading this blog I've decided to use it for some other tasks Little Bo Peep can complete. Like cleaning up the basement the other night and making her bed this morning!

Now I need to make a picture list for her to see what earns stickers.

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.

    The other day, Emma cleaned up all her little toys, put them in a crate and put the crate back in her room on the shelf!! Fills me with pride!
