Ok, bear with me here!
I cannot close the school year without capturing the precious moments we experienced all year. I think this post takes us to December. So, there will be a few more to follow. :)
As you enjoy these posts, I want you to know that there was plenty of noise, trouble and hard work that fell in between all of these precious moments. Not all moments are blissful around here - but so many are, and for that - I am thankful!
Ian LOVES work vehicles - so... leaf pick up time - he went nuts! In fact, he jumped up and down with excitement as they arrived.
Recess time - foot massages.
I even enjoyed one too!
I am able to keep Ian busy for quite some time if I give him some scissors and paper. This was one of my tricks when I needed to work with the girls on a task.
Packing our Operation Christmas Child boxes. We did 3 - 2 girls and 1 boy box. Just like our family!
I'm so amazed by how I can have the main floor all picked up and organized when I wake up in the morning - and then the kids wake up - we do breakfast, start school - and the whole place blows up! And... this is how it looks by 10am. :)
Ian keeping himself busy by lining up his cars...
and then Halle jumps in.
Well, Halle's babydoll needs to eat too, right?!
Phonics - we love Explode the Code!
Writing - making a Thankful Tree at Thanksgiving time.
Halle learned how to draw stars - she was so excited!
Tea party and conversation.
Silent reading time.
Ian's preschool Christmas Program.
We enjoyed a homeschool field trip to see the Nutcracker. They had 3 stations where we got to meet the dancers, learn about the costumes and their lives as ballet students/performers.
Sophie hosted a Charlie Brown Christmas Pajama Party!
Writing - addressing our Christmas card envelopes!
Our Thankful Tree!
