Happy July everyone! It's Friday and that means time to tell ya what's been happening over here at The Joys of Home Educating....
It's rained almost every day for 3 weeks around here...my plants are all water logged...the kids have not been out to play much with the heat and humidity so high....we have been doing art projects and other "in home" stuff...we have been "schooling" everyday and I already had to hand in my Letter of Intent, to school Molly and Zachary, to the district.
We did make it to two minor league baseball games in the last week though! One was with a large group of friends and the other was just our family. The kids had a great time and we will be back for more I am sure!
I did not take many pictures with my camera this week...more with my phone...so if the pictures are not the best...I apologize.
The girls made cards for several people (birthdays coming up this month) using the bottom of a celery stalk. We did this last year also and it was a big hit! I love how the cards turned out!
We spent the Fourth of July at a friends house, poolside. The kids had a great time as well as the adults. It was low key but so nice to not "entertain" for a change!
Zachary has been building a lot lately with our wooden blocks (something that never gets old...). I also took this picture of the cloud because in person it looking like a HUGE Cotton ball coming up over the trees....against such a blue sky.
Thanks for everyone who has been praying for my father. He is back home from the hospital but not out of the woods yet (continued prayer would be appreciated). I decided, after a lot of prayer, that I will be taking the kids down to see him in NC at the end of August and then traveling on to Charleston, SC to see my uncle and have a mini vacation with the children.
I hope your week was filled with love and laughter!
Wont you join me over at Collage Friday - Homegrown Learners!
