Week in Review: Babywearing, Pi, and Horseback Riding

autumn in New England

We enjoyed stunning autumn leaves in Massachusetts this week! Four-year-old Johnny especially enjoys running through them, and I love seeing them on the trees!

reading with Dad

Mike had a three-day weekend courtesy of Columbus Day, and we all enjoyed the extra time with him home!

baby tummy time

Two-month-old Anna is working on her tummy time skills, with varying levels of enthusiasm…

Khan Academy

Mike is working hard to instill his love of math in his children. Khan Academy is a lot of fun, and if you’ve never visited the site you should – especially if you share Mike’s opinion that, “If we’re going to raise nerds, we have to start early!”

pi, i, and other numbers

I loved Emma’s fanciful depiction of Pi. I will never look at that number the same way again. Maybe Johnny will come up with an illustration of i, one of these days…

One of Mike’s coworkers owns a horse, and she invites the kids to come ride him every fall. Emma drew this picture in anticipation of the event, which took place last Monday. Photos to follow soon :)

four-year-old birthday list

Johnny’s birthday is still a couple months away, but he is hard at work planning the event! He wrote this birthday list all on his own – with spelling help, of course!

celebrating babywearing week

It was International Babywearing Week, and Anna celebrated by hanging out in every single one of my baby carriers at least once this week!

  1. Oh my! That pic of Mike with the kids is so precious! And our hubbys should meet, their philosophies sound similar. :) We have 2 of the kids in Kumon Math, it’s been working wonders!

  2. The photos in this post are amazing. Love the picture of Mike with the fantastic four! I have to try Khan Academy with Anna, a little frustrated with her math curriculum in school!

  3. I love the pic of Mike with the kids doing math, so funny that the baby is learning too!

    Emma’s pictures are awesome and Johnny is writing well.

  4. I love these pictures. Precious moments!

    I feel like autumn is extra beautiful this year. Maybe it is, or maybe I am just getting older and noticing more. Not sure.

  5. This post about Pi just makes me smile. I love how Pi comes between 3 and 4, what a great description. For me, I wasn’t sure if I should be excited that my 1.5 yr old recognized Pi before any letters in the Latin alphabet.
