Hi y’all. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? It seems inspiration to write has left the building! My dear friend at BornAgain encouraged me to share with you all what’s been going on.
All is well. We are are all physically well here. Back to church and my husband is still working. Only one who has been on a stand-still is my oldest as her day services have been closed since March. I have been trying to keep her as busy as I can. She is a big help around here.
We’ve taken a few trips to a near by amusement park over the summer, our yearly trip to my Aunt’s camper and many trips to a state park 10 mins away from our house.
I’ve spent many hours preparing for school. We started last week. I have taken another girl, Abigail’s age to homeschool along with my two girls. It’s been a blessing as she brings life to our school days. To watch her face light up as she gets the academic attention she’s needed. Having her here each day gives my girls someone to play with…and someone to fight over. All of you that had siblings growing up know what I mean.
We did alot of baking cakes over the summer. Both girls baked a cake for Leah’s bday. They loved it.
Abigail has a pet chicken named Bessie. It comes to her when she calls its name. The chicken will perch on her arm. The chicken rode on the big wheel too! Don’t ask.
Abigail wove her own purse with her loom. And leah made her own doll out of scrap material and yarn.
More pics with Bessie-boo the chicken.
Paddle boats for weary legs
Pontoon boat rides and sunburns!
Car shows…where the girls got bored at one point so they fought over each cool car yelling, “Mine, I claim it!”
Let’s see if that works…”mine!”
Nope not in my driveway…😟
Not that chicken again!!
See that rollercoaster behind us? They need a sign that says…for the physically young, not the young at heart! Seriously, fun!
Real stuffed lion at a restaurant. Leah named it Patrick.
My husband’s version of mask protection. I told him it bothers me I can’t see people’s faces if they’re smiling or not. With his rendition…everyone smiles!
We let a zucchini get real big on purpose….guess who ate it?
Yep that chicken!
Here’s our schoolroom. We are doing almost 5 hrs of hard work a day. It’s been intense. I’ve designed the day like a dance it seems. I’m working out the glitches, but for the most part I’m well pleased with what I’ve come up with the teach 2 in 5th grade and 1 in 2nd grade.
