This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Ring the bell ~ Mikayla got her kip

Ding, Ding!!!

Mikayla got her kip tonight at the end of practice,pottyand a kip 049 YAHOOOOO!!! She hit the skill two times in a row for it to count.  We are so excited that she got this new skill needed for the level 5 team.  Mikayla has been working really hard at building her upper body strength and it finally paid off today at practice.  Coach Mariah gave her a $1 bill and she got to pick a new gym monkey, the red one.

On another note, today was our last day of the 2010 ~ 2011 school year!  We made it, 2 years down.  I am very proud of the girls for their effort and dedication and hard work this year.  We had some pretty shaky parts but God guided us back down the right path and now we are back on track.  We start back up our summer session on June 20th for six weeks of of math, science, and LA arts.  We will be doing lots of reading as we complete our summer reading goals.  I will post our plans for that sometime next week.  I am still trying to put the last finishing touches on the project part of it. 

Next week we will be doing our yearly testing and then I will be heading to my very first Homeschool Convention on Friday.  I am pretty excited and can’t wait to hear all the wonderful speakers and experience the exhibitor’s hall. 

What have you been up to this week?
