I love Fall and all the fun activities there are. The weather in Texas is still pretty hot, but it's cooler than it has been. Last weekend we went to the Japanese Festival. We are just starting to study Asia as part of our homeschool, so this was a fun outing. The festival was a lot of fun and there were several fun activities for the kids to do. Blue Rock loved learning more origami. He's gotten really good at it and it was neat to show him a bunch of different things people have done. They even got their names written in Japanese. He also liked feeding the fish and even made a little fishing pole out of a tall piece of grass. He picked up a dead dragon fly and tried putting it on his fishing line as bait to catch a fish. When that wasn't working he reached in the pond to try and grab a fish that way. He's so much fun! Princess loves being outside and she has fun anywhere we go.
One of Blue Rock's favorite games was a game that they gave him a little fishing net that dissolved in the water. He could scoop up as much prizes as he could before the net broke. He loved this! While we were there he was thinking about how he could recreate this game. When we got home he had a plan and did a great job coming up with recreating the dissolving fishing net game. He made some for him and his sister.
After the festival, we went and ate fish for lunch. It was a lovely morning.
