Vacation Bible School

This week was all about Vacation Bible School.  The theme was cave quest.  Liam had a blast as he sang songs, listened to Bible stories and played games -- some with water -- outside.  I helped out too but I was so busy I did not have a good chance to take many pictures.  
Ivy was a group helper for the preschool. She was so tired after a busy morning, but she made many little friends.

Happy Father's Day

We were in the kitchen a lot this week.



  Which got me thinking about the great food my dad taught me about. Here is a short list:

1. BBQ chicken, and how to make it properly
2. Lebkuchen, I still eat it every Christmas
3. Garden fresh veggies, especially strawberries and tomatoes.
4. Deviled eggs
5. Oyster Dressing and rhubarb.
6 Bratwurst and brotchen.


The last couple of times I talked to my dad he asked about this blog and when I was going to update.  Well, dad here is your father's day gift:  I am going to try my very hardest to post weekly right here, so you and mom can keep up with everything we are doing and learning. 

Happy Father's Day 

 

 


Court of Honor

This was the first time we had both kiddos in scouting.  It was an unqualified success.  Both received patches.  Zippy leveled up to the highest group. And both are excited about returning next year.









When Zippy put her 90 hours (each bead represents an hour) she overflowed the jar

Summer is almost here

Summer is almost here.  It certainly feels like it outside with almost 90 degree days.  We are continuing to homeschool through the summer months, but it is fun to take a break and head down to the splash pad just down the street.
