Happy Pumpkin Day!

National Pumpkin Day

Did you know there was such a thing? I didn't! I love pumpkins, in all their orange glory. Pumpkin patches, books about pumpkins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, roasted pumpkin seeds, and my all-time fav, Panera's pumpkin muffins. I've passed along my addiction to my son. He asks for them a lot.

We have been doing some fun pumpkin experiments here! We love the book "How Many Seeds In A Pumpkin?" by Margaret McNamara. After we carved our pumpkins, we made some predictions about how many seeds each pumpkin would have, how many lines, and whether they would sink or float. N thought they would sink since the pumpkins were so heavy. Surprisingly, they float!

In honor of National Pumpkin Day, head over to my TpT store and check out my Pumpkin Science Unit. It's a great addition to your pumpkin units, filled with activities about the life cycle, structure,  what happens in the patch during each season, recording sheets, and even fun Center ideas for a fun Pumpkin Day at your school or co-op.

These are the "Good Old Days"!

Welcome to my blog! I have been a blog junkie for quite some time. I finally decided to try something new and  join the blogging world! 

I'm a firm believer that THESE are the "good old days". Time goes so fast with two littles, and I hope this blog helps me to be intentional about my time with them. The cliche "the days are long, but the years are short" is all too true, so this is my feeble attempt to hang onto them, haha. 

I will be sharing some fun, creative, thematic units, music resources, educational ideas, crafts, and a glimpse into our military family. I also hope to connect with and learn from all of you! 
Here we go!!
