Dorian's favorite subject right now is math. We hear alot of "what is 4+8+3?", he loves testing us.
We used m&m's the other day to do math. It was fun and yummy.

Pumpkin Patch

We headed to the pumpkin patch on Saturday with the fam.
We had such a great time as we do every year.
The kids loved the mazes and the kettle popcorn!
We were very lucky that it was a lovely autumn day.

A Little Bit Of Everything

So much has been going on the last few weeks that I haven't had a moment to sit down to post. Speaking about posting on the blog, as you know we have 2 blogs, this one and Relections On Dorian. I have decided to merge the blogs. I always have a hard time picking what should go on what blog.
It is hard to seperate life and homeschooling, it all blends and so therefore we will just have Life with the __________. On to the fun stuff, we are all doing wonderful. Ash started his 4th week at BI inc., as most know the first position he took with a company that was hired by Apple did not pan out. It was not what he was looking for, alot of nonsense going on there. He is enjoying his position and it is nice as we can have lunch with him as his lunch is 1 hour long. It has been an adjustment for all of us getting use to not working together daily, but we are all making it. We have been busy on the weekend having fun or just relaxing at home. During the week Dori and I are busy at home doing school or out and about at fun places, of course 12 is reserved for lunch with daddy.

Here are some photos from the past few weeks.

This cat is at the park we go to during Ash's lunch break.
It is such a sweet cat! It follows us everywhere like a dog.

It took us about 1.5 hours to go through the whole thing and get all the "clues" and at the end the kids got a certificate for finishing. They got to "dress up" there picture on there certificate.

Well, we have been busy so sorry for the lack of updates from us.
Everything is going great. Autumn is in full effect, the leaves are dancing around the streets and the rain is coming down almost daily now.
