Field Trip

Our homeschool group took a field trip to the Eisenhower Museum today.  Steven was able to take off work and come with us and I am so glad he did.  We had a great time!

I can't wait to share the wonderful pictures but they are on my phone! lol 

If you don't know about Eisenhower I strongly suggest you learn more about him.  He was a man of integrity and strong moral character.  Steven and I are searching for a biography to read and learn more about our Kansas native. 

Of course we are getting ready for World War 1 in our Tapestry studies so we will be learning more about him then as well!  I love it when history invades our every day lives!!

School, school, and more school

School is still going at a harried pace.  I can't believe we are approaching our second Sabbath Week of the year.  I have to admit that I am so stinkin' happy for Sabbath can't get here soon enough. 

No, school isn't going badly.  It's pretty good in fact.  I am just tired.  Life is unsettled right now and drama is keeping it that way.  :(

We are doing pretty well with our Tapestry of Grace so far.  We are on track and getting ready for our first Unit Celebration on the 20th.  A few projects are in the works and hopefully everyone will get them done in time! lol

Sunshine is doing great with her high school classes at our Homeschool Group.  I am so thankful that our group offers high school level classes for credit and that the teachers love what they teach.  Have I mentioned lately that I love our homeschool group?

Auditions for our next play are coming up and I can't wait to get it started.  The kids are so excited they keep asking about it every week!  It's going to be another great performance I just know it. 

Life marches on when we aren't looking and I'm sad to see the girls growing up so fast.  I will treasure each moment while I have them.

Impromptu Field Trip

On a trip in May we stopped off at a place I have seen for years and had never stopped to see it.  Steven agreed and we stopped to investigate...

It was an old schoolhouse.  Perfect right?

We were all in homeschool heaven!  I have had the pics on my phone for forever and am finally getting them posted. 

Isn't it beautiful?
