We have been enjoying such beautiful, warm weather with just enough wind to keep us cool. Here is a snipet of our summer so far...
Meg's first horse ride ever! She's been asking since she was 7.
Jordan before her haircut...
and after! Megan says she is next in line to get her hair chopped off.
Family project, turning an old closet door into a bench seat.
Jeff is teaching Jackson a little programming.
First family dinner of summer. Here are some of our sweet friends here in Brookings!
Food coloring flowers.
This was an Irish folk concert at our library. It was amazing! The recorders made me feel like I was in Narnia!
Jackson with two friends, Dave (left) and Sean (right), at a field trip to the Cal-Or Lifeflight airport in Crescent City, Ca. One of the homeschool dads, Tim, is the lead pilot for Cal-Or and he taught the kids all about his job. It was super interesting! Jackson said that he wants to take flying lessons when he turns 14. I'm not so sure about that!
Jordan and Isa in the cockpit. This was really a neat thing for the kids to experience.
Mira and I wanted to climb in the plane and check things out, too!
A few of the homeschoolers who came to this class.
Picnic at the park in Crescent City after the field trip.
For my birthday, from the sweet Powers kidlets. My birthday fell on a Fun Friday, so we had friends over to play. It was wonderful!
Birthday prizes from Julie and Cindy. I'm quite spoiled, don't you think? Can you believe how beautiful this carrot cake is? We are enjoying the episodes of Bugabee!
My sweet friend Dawn got me this beautiful rose bush! I can't wait to get it potted and on the patio.
The kids made a chalk walk on the back patio.
And then they had a water balloon fight. ;)
Julie made this strawberry cake for all of us! It was so good!!!
Carolina throwing a water balloon at Trent.
Trent was using his noggin' to smash some balloons.
Jordan and Jenna worked together on a square.
One side of their work.
These boys are always up to something.
Later, Jeff said that he wanted to do a square. He really should use his artistic talent more often!
So that was the first two weeks of our summer vacation!
