first day of summer (school is out! )


The kiddos are signing été, summer, in french. We are working on 3 new words each day of été.  Words and phrases they relate to that day…like maillot de bain or swim suit:


We’ve started a notebook where we’ll keep track of the words we are learning.Tonight, they were so excited to share with the designer what they had learned.


A day full of sunshine, they ran in the sun, or soleil, all day long…water fights, bubbles, helping Grandma mulch,  and plant tomatoes & peppers.


Later we rode our bikes to the post office, read books together, & they jumped on the tramp with the designer after dinner…a very good start to an adventurous été.

What adventures are you looking forward to this summer?
