A little bit of this….and that

It’s been a week since my last post.  I have been trying really hard to keep up with blogging, but I am having a hard squeezing it in between this:

Lilah has has several orders to fulfill which required many trips to the post office!
Grace has been working on designing her new Instagram account.

Grace loves these little science kits.  This was the soda can robot.

Lilah did some art journaling for fun.  We are almost ready to incorporate more of this into our week again.  We miss it.

We still stop by the beach every week on the way to sign language.  Just 20 min refreshes us.

Our 16 point compass roses are complete.  Post will be coming soon.

Lilah loves gymnastics - so much more than she thought she would!

Grace loves it every bit as much as she thought she would!

Our day to day activities take us from Monday to Friday in the blink of an eye.  Now that the holidays are upon us, we are slowing down, staying home as much as possible, and focusing on the projects that are occupying our minds; Lilah’s craft fair and Grace’s music performances.

I just love how your weeks flow Jess. The girls are busy doing things they love and that is awesome. I want to talk to you about Lilah's craft fair. Wonderful pictures that show how much home educating rocks!!!!

Thanks! These are just random pictures that needed a place in the blog. I am going to try to sit and actually write a bit about what we are doing. The next few weeks we have so much going on that I should have plenty to say. I've been a bit quiet lately just enjoying the slower pace. Even though we have the craft fair and a zillion performances, sign language ends this week until January and our Marine class is over, and Bible Study is done. It is a good feeling to know the girls can take extra time doing what they love until the pace picks back up again in January. Let's talk this week - maybe tomorrow but def either Thurs or Fri!

I too have missed seeing posts from you this week. I totally agree with the Monday - Friday thing passing in a blink of an eye. Each week passes by so fast, sometimes it is hard to sit back and enjoy any of the moments. Hoping to slow down after all the performances and enjoy the holidays.
Blessings

I am going to try to post more of my thoughts about the phase of life and homeschooling that we are entering into. We are just so busy lately that I don't make the time to sit down and write it all out……..I am hoping to catch up now that we are slowing down for the holidays!

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
