View From the Kitchen Window

The other morning while doing the dishes I looked out my kitchen window and saw this scene which brought a HUGE smile to my face.

Dacia Grace had been busy playing in the backyard.  Anyone know what movie this comes from?  It happens to be her favorite movie.  She plays it continually.  I am sure that by the end of this summer there will be many more popsicle sticks added to these two.

Here is another view of these precious popsicle sticks.

My minature rose bush bloomed this year even though
I planted it in the wrong area....not enough sun.


Randy, Leilani and Gabe, these two photos are for you!

Sitting on my computer desk
She makes a good supervisor!

Her favorite place to nap when I am at the computer is right at my feet.

First Day of School

The last weekend of June, Arthur and I were able to attend our first home school conference which was hosted by OCEANetwork.  What a blessing!   We were challenged on many levels. 

For today, however, the challenge I am referring to is starting our school year early so that we are ahead from the get go.  This allows for "sick days" for Mommy and for Dacia Grace.  It allows for spontaneous field trips and vacation times with Daddy.  So today was our first day of school.  

We are using the kindergarten curriculum from My Father's World and really love it.  I am going to attempt to keep the blog updated with all that we are doing throughout the school year.  I have lots of fun things planned for us.

Here are a few pictures from our first day of school. The composition may not be the greatest. The focus may not be the greatest but the memories they are the greatest!

Working on Day 1 of her Look What God Made in Seven Days book.

Wonder what letter I will find?

"An l!"

We had lots of working on our new book, playing math and letter games.  All too soon our time was done for the day.
