We had no plans and since its a rainy day with nothing to do, we started school today instead of tomorrow! The kids jumped right in and we got a lot done. They are on lunch break now then they just have bible, and DD has math. And they will be calling my dad to interview him for history. Then I think we will go to Barnes and Nobles and do their summer reading program and we are getting Chinese food for dinner :)
We started school today too! It was a rainy, stormy morning, and we were planning on starting our lightning/electricity unit study Wednesday, so we started today instead. :-) We read lightning & thunder mythology from different cultures, then each of them made their own myth about 'where lightning comes from'.. Elijah wrote the first part of his in his journal for writing practice, and then we made lightning pictures with watercolor over white crayon. :-) It was fun!
It was a big party in my parent's private community.
I took the kids up Friday. Saturday during the day they had pool games and a hot dog lunch, slushies, horseshoe.competition and pool games, in the evening they had a dance and hay rides.
Sunday was a trap shoot and then a community dinner (tri-,tip and bbq chicken) awards from the horseshoe and trap competition, and a raffle. My Dad plays in a bluegrass band and they played during the setup and seating of the dinner.
DS2, who turns 13 next month, won both the novice trap shoot and the kid's BB gun shoot. He will have to compete with the adults next year.
Today there was a pancake breakfast and pool time.
