Doing crafts


Islwyn and I signed up for a program at the Maine Audubon Society for the Fall.  We go and hear stories about something in nature, do a craft, and then get a guided walk through the woods.  We went to the first one on Thursday and Islwyn loved it.  Below is the picture Islwyn did.  I helped him cut out the leaves and then he glued them on.  Then he did a lot of coloring around the leaves.  He was actually writing letters--he kept saying, "E, R, E, M."  He said that as he drew.  Then every time he looks at the picture he "reads" it by saying, "E, R, E, M."  Interesting.

Such great photos Sarah! Islwyn is so cute with that big smile! AnaSofia and I had thought of signing up for Audubon at the end of October - too bad I didn't know you guys were going! Tell me what you think because I am still deciding (due to cost!). Hope to see you guys this week - the leaf pile is waiting and it is only getting COLDER!
