In the planning groove

Welcome to our Angry Bird obssesed summer. Both boys want to make new Piggie block designs to knock down with their Angry Bird stuffies, daddy went a little overboard and crazy, he loves getting fun stuff for his boys. I will do another poat soon on what kind of Angry Bird stuff we do.
We are trying to get 1st grade math done here in the next month so we can start Aug as a 2nd grader math class along with 2nd grade reading and writing programs. Starting spelling and grammer curriculum this year and continuing social studies, geography and science.  I will do a whole curriculum list for 2013-2014 school year later this month when I finish planning. For now we will enjoy the many summer programs and lots of outside fun along with some trips to see family and a good week of Christian music.
Hope you all have a Blessed day as we pray you and your family enjoy God`s glorious abundance that He has given to us to share with and explore with our children.

So VBS started last Sunday and ran through Thursday.  Lots of fun for all, not a lot of pics though.  Kingdom Rock was awesome and the catch phrase was "Being brave helps us stay strong!"  Even Bobo loved saying it.  We missed Monday because we didn't get back from the zoo till almost 7 and then Thursday too cause Buggie had a fever of 103.  Buggie says he had the most fun during craft time.  Daddy even got some one-on-one time with Bobo since Buggie did not want to be at church without mom so no errand running for me, but I did get some much needed adult time with some friends, without having to chase down Bobo.  Praise God we have so many volunteers that made VBS great and a special time for all. 
Hope you are all enjoying your summer so far.
God Bless from our home to yours.

Back to fun

We started the week out going to the BIG zoo with friends. Lots of walking and we even got to ride the train, spoiled babies. Wish the elephants were back though. We will go back soon because we did not get to see all we wanted since we had an hour and a half wait in the train line, bit the boys enjoyed it and that is really what matters.
We had a great time at our homeschool group last week @ Antelope Park. Buggie got to play swords, still figuring out if he is old enough, if Im comfortable with that yet, but good experiment.  Bobo had a blast playing and hanging w the big kids. 
We also did a geocaching excursion at Pioneers Park with another homeschool group, sorry no pictures. It was great fun and lots of hiking, Bobo got lots of piggyback rides and Buggie loved being in a group where most of the children are his age and some are even SDA, which is awesome.
