Bartering Market

We participated in our homeschool co-op group again this fall.  Andrew took classes on Moths and Butterflies and also Native Americans.  Coleman will get to enroll in "big kid" classes next semester.  I taught a class to thrid, fourth and fifth graders on Titanic.  We all had a fun semester.  We ended our fall with the Bartering Market and Christmas Party.  Our boys took chocolate dipped candy covered pretzel rods to trade this year.  They both made some really good trades and had a great time.  I enjoyed seeing Coleman come out of his shell a little with the bigger kids and trade with some of them too. 

 One of our friends brought a spin art machine and the kids could trade with him for a paper to use to make their own spin art.  Andrew and Coleman each traded for a turn.

 Both of the boys are enjoying art this year, but Coleman has always been our art lover.  He completed his turn at the machine, and then asked the mommy in charge if he could stand and watch everyone else take their turn.  So that's where he was for the rest of the market time.

 After the bartering ended, we shared fun snacks and enjoyed visiting with our friends. 

We are looking forward to next semester!
