Harvest Unit Week Seven – Why Do Leaves Change Colors?

This week started off with being sick and a library glitch that made our account delinquent for a week. We missed the Autumn Harvest Festival at a local Chinese garden and a birthday party. Since we weren’t able to check out any books, we relied on YouTube for our stories and found a couple of …

Mimi and I discussed her goals for this school year and the biggest thing she wants to accomplish is learning to read. Our first step was to assess what letters, uppercase and lowercase, she can recognize without any hesitation. This was our first “test”and she enjoyed doing it.

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Vegan, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free

Pumpkin spice is everywhere. I’m not obsessed with pumpkin spice, but I’m not a hater of it either. With our dietary restrictions, most commercial pumpkin spice products are no good for us. I was craving anything pumpkin so I looked at the ingredients I had and figured I probably had the ingredients to make no …
