Day #26/175 Days

We had a neat opportunity come up that sort of threw our day off. Late on Sunday I heard of the chance for the kids to talk to a Maine author.

The Mountains of Maine: Intriguing Stories Behind Their Names

Steve Pinkham was intriguing and engaging. The kids seemed to really enjoy talking to him and were full of questions. This is his first book published but he shared the ideas for his next three books. His second book will be coming out very soon. 

This tied in very well with the Maine studies we've been doing at homeschool co-op.

I also had my nephew for the day. Instead of doing school, I let the boys play. 

The boys did practice their piano and we took a two mile walk. I love Maine in fall.
