What Book Character Would You Be?

posted in: Family Fun, Homeschooling | 1

Last week at our homeschool co-op we had a Fun Day where we were to dress up as a book character. The kids and I had a great time figuring out who we would be and what we needed to complete our costumes.  Take a look to see what characters we dressed up as. What book character would you be?   Super Grover Blake was the easiest decision by far.  He LOVES Super Grover, and he already had a Super … Read More

Here is a summer snapshot of the last month.   Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter We took a mini family vacation to visit the Creation … Read More

We are getting close to the end of July, and that is making me sad.  I can’t believe we only have one more month of summer vacation left before we start up school again.  At the same time, it is hard for me to believe that I am already on summer Snapshot #9. Time is going too fast!   On a happy note, we had another great week last week.  All the kids were in swim lessons last week, and … Read More

  This past week was another one full of memories.  The kids attended a local church’s Vacation Bible School in the morning which meant this mama had her mornings to herself all week… a rarity for homeschooling moms.  The kids had a fun week at VBS, and we were able to throw in some other fun things too. On Monday it was July 11th. {7/11} If you are unaware most 7-11 stores give away free Slurpees on this day, so … Read More

Summer feels like it is flying by. I want to hit the stop button. I am looking at the calendar, and I almost have anxiety about how fast it is going and how little time we have left. This past week, we had a monumental birthday in the house. Hayley turned 10! Jeff took the day off, and we had such a fun day celebrating her and doing everything that she wanted to do. We went to the pool, then … Read More

I apologize for the delay in getting the recap of last week up but, to my credit, we were on vacation!  Last week we had a wonderful week visiting my family in New Jersey.   It was such a fun filled full week! It is so nice now that the kids are older not having to worry about naps and all the little kid things.  Even … Read More

Summer Snapshot #5

It has been nice getting settled back into our house this week. The whole month of June was a bit of a whirlwind with all the home renovation projects going on. One of the kids even commented that it was like we were living in a ‘Fixer-Upper.’ Alas, the house is painted, the new carpet is installed, furniture is put back in its rightful place, and pictures are hung back on the walls.   This past week both boys took … Read More
