Not real sure where the week went....we celebrated a lot this week...Zachary turned 9 on Monday and a few days before that we had family over to celebrate with us! Minecraft was the theme of the party! We had a great time and the weather was perfect!
We did about an hour a day of book work and continued with teachings outside the home...We went to see the movie TURBO (great movie!) and of course Friendly's for a celebratory birthday sundae!
On Monday, his actual birthday, we went to the Renegades Baseball game (our minor league team). It was a special time for Zachary. We allowed him to bring two friends to share the night. As a surprise to Zachary, I arranged for him to throw out the 1st pitch, had his name in lights on the tron board and they all went out to practice catching on the field prior to the game! In addition, one of the event employees picked the kids (randomly) to go out at the 7th inning stretch and sing Take Me Out to The Ballgame. It was a fun time! (video below)!
In addition to all the fun above...my father is back in ICU this week with some heart complications. I am praying he is out today or tomorrow. We are taking a road trip to see him in a month! This week will be a blurr also...Eric has two softball playoff games...we are going to another baseball game on Monday....we leave Thursday morning for a 5 day trip to NASCAR (with the camper) - in Watkins Glen (Wine Country - Upstate NY)....
I hope you will join me over at Homegrown Learners for Collage Friday!
