To kick off our summer, we went to the Hershey Factory and learned ALL about chocolate. One of Bug's favorite things. We went on this ride three times, where they showed the whole process from cacao beans being picked to how they are processed and treated, and then made into yummy milk chocolate. A fun field trip!

And then, we got to make our very own candy bars! So exciting... :)

Our Summer :)

It's so hard to believe that our summer is drawing to a close. But it's true ~ Bug goes to Kindergarten in THREE days!! So here's a wrap-up of what we have been up to over the past few months.

Lulu sorting shapes, and Bug teaching her how to do puzzles:

From late spring/early summer, the desert in bloom:

A hummingbird nest and eggs in our front yard:

Lulu is getting more into learning with her big sister! :)

The last month has just been HOT. So we did 4 weeks of swim lessons in the mornings, and then came home and read books, watched (too much, probably!) TV, played games, and did a lot of crafts. I need to replenish the craft cabinet!

I just printed out the September Little Acorn Learning booklet, getting ready to do some fun things with Lulu in the mornings and with Bug (and Lulu) in the afternoons.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun summer! :) Happy New School Year!
