Park Day

Having had a "cold" summer this year, due to the G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S weather we took a break from our normal schedule and headed to the park with some friends. Free play and bike skills were enjoyed by all. Here are some highlights:

First Day of CBS

Community Bible Study (or CBS) is affectionately referred to as church school in our home.   Dacia Grace and I have attended since the fall of 2007.   It is a much anticipated beginning each fall.  Each fall we take "new school pictures".  This year was no different.

Pretty in pink and
ready for church school.

Dacia Grace was very excited to be "graduated" upstairs with the big kids!  Her classroom is also right across the hall from mine room.

Trader Joe's Field Trip

A field trip to Trader Joe's with a homeschool group has been on our calendar for almost two months now.  Dacia Grace has been anxiously awaiting this trip.  Here are the highlights:

MMMMM Sample Time!

Yummy produce

The sign makers' art corner.
Dacia Grace wanted to go have fun in there.

One of the highlights of the visit:  checking out your own items.
This was a very fun field trip.  Some of the highlights that I was not able to photograph included a tour of the subzero freezer, the regular freezer and playing peek-a-boo with the customers and the box crusher and baler.

Waiting for School to be done!

Waiting and waiting and waiting!

"They seem to like things in this library box.
Maybe they will take me for a walk soon!"

We are still working on parts of this lesson but here are some of the highlights thus far:

Enjoying some "M"acaroni for lunch.
Notice the blue paint still on her cheek.
This is the week that Dacia Grace voluntarily sounded out and wrote "Mom" and "Dad" by herself on her notebooking page.  When I am able to take a picture of this I will add it.  :)

Anniversary Weekend

Happy anniversary to the best husband in the world!  To celebrate our seven wonderful years together we started off with.........power washing the driveway!  The rest of the weekend included more power washing,  power sanding and hanging out together as Dacia Grace spent the weekend with some friends!  What a time we had.  These are the only pictures from the weekend!

Happy 7th Anniversary Honey!

Our little helper striking a pose to show off
just how dirty she became.

A clean schnauzer after a good power washing.

This is what greeted us when we came home from dropping off Dacia Grace
at a friends' for the weekend.  LOL!  Happy Anniversary from the slugs.
