Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 8): Fall During a Pandemic

I’ve mentioned how we have been trying to keep certain things the same for the kids as we celebrate holidays. Sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge to find workarounds, but we have managed so far this year. With Fall and Halloween activities, normally I plan lots of crafts, as well as a visit to the pumpkin patch (does anyone else feel huge relief after that trip? I always worry each year that we won’t be able to find a reasonably dry day, and this year we needed to worry about avoiding people), and of course trick or treating.

Chiplet Adventures (part 15): Letter J Week

We are still here doing much of our usual routine, although the letter crafts have gotten spread out a bit more since I’m also working on the Fudgelet’s schoolwork while he is out of school for the next indefinite time period. We have also been going outside a bunch, partially since the Fudgelet normally gets two recesses a day, partially that we aren’t able to go anywhere and it helps to break up the day, and also because it has been so nice out.
