Our week…

May 19, 2013

This week we are so very close to finishing school. The kids have been agonizing for the news that they will have summer school…just a few hours a week. They’ve been so distraught that they have even tried to persuade me to change my mind by saying “Summer school is for kids who are stupid.” Not going to work kiddos! You will keep your mind engaged AND work ahead just a bit too!

Kids had their own field day. Although not highly attended, it was seriously fun! (Clare even got in on the fun. She was so thrilled to have the playground just a few yards away!)

Michael, who was so uncertain, had a great time! He’s such a stinker having to be “forced” to try something new only to find out that he loves it. He declared, “This was the best day of the year.” Katie was so great to help a young boy with autism learn how to do the 3-legged race. As a reward for coming in last place every time, I agreed to run with her for a bit. So silly!!!

I love our booster leads who think of so many of the details. Ms. Ginger awarded all with a medal! So cute! Mine were happy to get their first competition medal. Cute, right?!

This picture speaks volumes about Clare’s personality. Oh how we love her!!

It is true that God grants special graces to those hearts who are entrusted to form ones with such spirit. She is a goose for sure!!

Katie was honored to have stepped over to the next level of AHG. She is now an Explorer first year.

It was also awards night. She earned a few more badges for her Tenderheart vest which we will now retire and begin decorating her Explorer vest.

What a fantastic year. We are so thankful for this influence upon her life and the great families and girls she has come to call friend throughout the year. It’s good!!

She also got her new eyeglasses after having worn out the spring on her first pair. These came from Coastal.com and we are thrilled. I love especially the anti-glare lenses. $18 well spent!!! Now, to order a back up for Michael!

Gotta love summertime festivities! Who doesn’t love ice cream?!

Clare thinks she is as big as Katie & Michael. I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat seeing her sit next to them on this wall in our backyard. It’s always been the “get away from there” wall certain that the kids were going to fall off it. However, now it has become the primary means of movement between our house and the two houses behind us as the kids play with the neighbors. Instead of yelling and jumping on the big kids for encouraging the wall play, I picked up the camera and said a prayer to their guardian angels. It won’t be the last time I’m certain I see her there and catch my breath.

Clare has really taken to “ite” and “aw” just like the big kids. This particular morning she demanded they “write” and “draw” with her. Too cute! We really love the Crayola slick stix but boy are they messy. Easy to clean up, but seriously just like an oil crayon. Beautiful color quality but really soft!

We will officially finish up the kids’ school curriculum (a grade above for both of them) next week, take a week for VBS and then start a few hours in the afternoon for enrichment and working toward next year’s curriculum. This momma likes to play during the school year so we spread the year out over the summer too. Summer is almost here! It is sure to look a little different this year as the kids have made neighborhood friends! I can’t wait!

    Just love seeing everyone and enjoy the stories about the kids and what they are doing. Little Clare seems like such a “big personality”. I miss you all so much. Have a great weekend…give the kids kisses for me. xoxoxooxxo
